Opposition invites Azerbaijan president to dialogue

From Baku Today:

Chairman of major opposition Musavat party Isa Gambar has invited President Ilham Aliyev to dialogue.

Although the authorities should be the most interested side in the dialogue, they intend to breach it by making meaningless arguments, he said. Leaders of political parties included in the Azadlig (Freedom) bloc, who also comprises major opposition Popular Front and Azerbaijan Democratic Parties, met at the Musavat office on Thursday.

Gambar told a news briefing after the meeting that the bloc’s rally scheduled for August 27, the Armenia-Azerbaijan talks on the Nagorno Karabakh conflict settlement, the authorities-opposition dialogue and changes to election commissions were discussed.

The opposition leaders also considered issuing identity cards to citizens, voter lists and the recent arrest of Ruslan Bashirli, chairman of the Yeni Fikir youth movement charged with cooperating with Armenian secret service.
