Azerbaijan, Baku / corr. Trend S.Ilhamgizi / The Azerbaijani Democratic Party (ADP) charged the Musavat Party in forming a monopoly for the opposition camp.
Nuraddin Mammadli, the Chairman of the ADP noted that the New Azerbaijan newspaper, which is the printing body of the Musavat, holds a biased position towards them.
Supporters of the Musavat Party contend that the ADP intends to solve its financial problems by taking a new political course towards the ruling party.
Mammadli noted that his party made the decision to solve its problems with its headquarters before passing its decision on establishing a dialogue with the ruling party.
"As to leasing the headquarters, the ADP had some technical problems. Two months after resolving the problem, the Supreme Council of the Party made the decision to establish a dialogue with the authority party. Our party preferred to establish civil relations between the Government and the opposition instead of employing useless aggressive methods of struggle between them. The Musavat Party negatively regards this initiative taken by the ADP. Musavat intends to create a monopolistic forum among the opposition parties," Mammadli said.
The ADP was founded by Sardar Jalaloglu in1991. By January 2007, the party occupied an oppositional position against the Authorities. The party took a new political course in seeking dialogue with the Authorities in January 2007.
Musavat was founded in1992. Isa Gambar was the Speaker of the Azerbaijani Parliament during 1992- 1993, and ran for President in 2003. Five MPs represent the Party in the Azerbaijani Parliament.
