Jamil Hasanli - reserve opposition candidate in the presidential election
Today's session of the National Council elected Jamil Hasanli by the vast majority of votes as a reserve single candidate for the presidency of the National Council of the democratic forces. The meeting was held in the office of "Musavat" party.
In his speech, Professor of History Jamil Hasanli thanked for the confidence to him and said: "We all together will go the way of Mahammad Amin Rasulzadeh and Abulfaz Elchibey." This slogan was met with thunderous applause.
At today's meeting of the National Council a letter of Rustam Ibrahimbayov, a single opposition candidate in the presidential election, has been read.
Due to the current problems in registering Ibrahimbayov as a candidate because of the presence of Russian citizenship, the playwright proposed to elect Jamil Hasanli as a reserve candidate. The meeting participants welcomed the proposal. The meeting continues.
Today the National Council should make the final decision and develop strategy on Ibrahimbayov’s participation or non-participation in the elections
