Politics 17:29 08.12.2023

As we reported, the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan, Ilham Aliyev, yesterday, on February 7, adopted an order regarding the extraordinary presidential elections.

So, what is the attitude of the party leaders to the issue and who will be the candidates?

Ednews conducted a survey among the party chairmen about this:

Chairman of "Musavat" party Arif Hajili:

"Presidential elections were announced unexpectedly, in fact, there are no political crisis conditions for early elections. It is likely that an official announcement will be made to the community about why this decision was made in the next few days. Musavat Party's participation in these elections and who will be the candidate will be discussed in the party's management board today. Our decisions will be made public in the coming days.

Chairman of Umid Party Iqbal Aghazade said in a press release that it is not easy to compete with President Ilham Aliyev, especially shortly after the Karabakh victory.

At the same time, at today's meeting of the Umid Party, since there were different opinions on the issue of participating in the early election, the decision will be made after discussions with the local organizations of the party."

Natig Jafarli, executive secretary of the Republican Alternative Party:

"Actually, the decision was not a surprise. Because we expected to have several elections next year. Basically, a referendum was expected, but in any case, the REAL party is in favor of participating in elections in any form. Boycotting the elections would also be ineffective and incorrect. We will announce our final decision on the form of participation tomorrow after the meeting we will hold with the board of directors."

Chairman of the White Party, Tural Abbasli:

"Yesterday, we held an extraordinary meeting in this regard. It was decided that opinions of regional organizations and chairmen should be taken, and the final decision should be made accordingly. In any case, the decision was made very suddenly when the elections were ready. I reminded that presidential elections are a very difficult process. There is the collection of more than 40,000 signatures, the appointment of observers to about 6,000 polling stations, and thus it is a very extensive procedure. In the coming days, we will make a decision with the participation of regional organizations and other structures."
