Opposition-authority dialogue is problem again

01 August 2005 [10:31] - TODAY.AZ
Two parties are engaged in organizing the meeting between opposition and authority parties at the moment. Musavat Party is going to send the invitation next week and Party of Civil Solidarity is intending to arrange such meeting after two weeks.
The parties represented in “Azadlig” bloc which missed the meeting in the headquarters of YAP want the next meeting to be held in Musavat Party. Besides, the parties of the bloc consider the theme and result of the issue disputed in the meeting to be important not just the place of the meeting. Deputy Chairman of PFPA Fuad Mustafayev explaining the position of the bloc to APA stated that, their position was that the meetings should achieve concrete results.

“The participants of these meetings should have responsibility regarding the solution of the disputed issues; they should realize this as the result of the meeting. We consider that the actual problems today are making amendment to Election Code, providing equal rights for the parties, stopping the black PR pursued by the authority and other issues. We are ready to dispute these issues at any time”.

F.Mustafayev also told that, the next meeting was to be organized by Musavat Party. However, the ruling party broke this rule. “If the authority is trying to conduct discussions for the sake of the development of democracy it should be sincere in its steps. We do not want the meetings to be broken. However, the appeals made to the YAP regarding the meeting for two months were not replied normally at all”.

According to F.Mustafayev “Azadlig” bloc might dispute the issue concerning the place if there is any meeting with result. Chairman of Civil Solidarity party SAbir Rustamkhanli, though holding of next meeting was intrusted to his party, he has informed APA that they can hold discussion on the organizational field of this meeting.

“There is not any matter of principle for us there. If Musavat party agrees this time they will organize the meeting and then we can implement it after them. Simply the organizational works takes much trouble here. If Musavat party takes over this trouble then we shall agree”.

The deputy of the executive secretary of the Yeni Azerbaijan Party Mubariz Gurbanli informed that they waited for the Musavat Party for determining the meeting. If they realize this organization during one week and invite YAP to the headquarters of Musavat, then they will discuss it within the party.

“However, according to the procedure this meeting will be conducted by the Citizen Solidarity Party (CSP). That is why I suppose that we will meet with the heads of Musavat in the headquarters of CSP, not in the Musavat Party”.

As to party’s accepting the invitation or not in case Musavat will invite, M.Gurbanli reminded that the Musavat Party and generally “Azadlig” bloc did not accept their invitation last day: “That is why most probably, YAP can also make an adequate decision”.
