Activity Practice of Turkey’s Ruling Party Should be Studied in Azerbaijan: Co-Chair of Azerbaijan’s Azadlyg Bloc
Azerbaijan, Baku /corr. Trend S.Ilhamgizi / The practice of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) of Turkey should be studied by the political parties of Azerbaijan, said a member of the opposition Azadlyg bloc and Chairman of Citizen and Development Party of Azerbaijan, Ali Aliyev. He stressed that the results of the extraordinary parliamentary elections in Turkey did not correspond to the forecasts. The elections showed that the public opinion in the Country is of another kind. "For the first time in the past fifty years, the Turkish people allowed this party to be in power. It was an unexpected result in Turkey. I think that the political tactics of Rejeb Teyyub Erdogan during his term were successful. The ideological course of AKP may be accepted in other countries," Aliyev said.
According to Aliyev, because of the fact that the majority of Azeri people, are Turks by origin and Muslim by religion, are similar to those who brought success to the AKP, the party's political tactics should also be studied here. Aliyev said that Erdogan's direct dialogue with the public, his familiarization with the problems of the citizens, his respectful attention towards the religious and national values translated as him becoming the leader in the right-central political camp in Turkey.
"It is possible to say that the Justice and Development Party put all the remaining parties in the right-central camp under its shadow. Therefore, it could attract the votes of the camp," Aliyev said.
