He shared his views on 2008 presidential elections.
“It is important to hold free and transparent presidential elections in 2008, the more the elections are fair, the more the president’s prestige will rise in the international arena. Unfair and non-transparent elections produce no results. Some think that the people have lost their hope in free elections, but I consider that there will be changes in this respect. Of course, for these changes people should want free elections. Much also depends on the government,” he said.
Assessing the state of Azerbaijani opposition Daniel Fried said that young generation will form new opposition. He also held Turkey up as an example.
“Turkey is a younger democratic state compared with 20 years ago. The country’s economic growth, democratic state is obvious,” he said. /APA/
