Appeal to the people
of the participants of I Congress of the Azerbaijan Rising Party to the people of Azerbaijan
The appeal was accepted at the Constituent Congress of the Rising Party dated 06.12.2020.
We are all witnessing a time when Azerbaijan is experiencing a very important and unparalleled stage of nation-building. We wish God's mercy to all our martyrs, healing to our wounded and health to our soldiers, who gave us these historic days, when tears of joy mingled with the feeling of victory.
From now on, the hard work of our nation, which has written a history of heroism on the battlefield, will be easy, the long way will be short, and the heavy burden will be light. We, as a nation, have successfully resolved the only vital issue before us - the Garabagh conflict. After that, the main direction is to achieve the establishment of a just, open society dominated by advanced science and technology, by modern education and scientific thinking, competitive in terms of political tolerance and cooperation.
One of the most important issues is to draw a map of the path of economic and political development that Azerbaijan needs in the post-war period, without falling into the euphoria of victory, with calm thinking and correct calculations. We must get rid of the characteristics of our classics, such as skepticism, self-satisfaction, denial of their mistakes, which some of our people do not like, and instead embrace the spirit of daily work. The courage we showed on the front lines of the war must now be replaced by our tireless work in civil life, both on ourselves and in solving our problems.
One of such works is to solve many problems of the society by ensuring the unity of our citizens in the political sphere. Undoubtedly, the main way to do this is to establish new parties. When we say a new party, we mean to bring a new spirit, a new vision, a new approach to society. Although the previous political unions had positive aspects, they destroyed our fragile national unity gained in the first years of the National Liberation Movement due to their relations with each other through accusations, discord, intrigue and threatening rhetoric, and aroused disgust in our people in political activity and politics in general. If we add to this the intimidation, prohibition and punishment measures taken by government officials against our free-thinking people, our political and public associations that support a democratic society, we can see that Azerbaijan is in a very sad place in the political sphere.
What do we want? We want mothers to receive decent benefits, pensioners' medicines to be covered by the insurance system, teachers and doctors to be given the status of civil servants, the Civil Service Law to be rewritten in accordance with the laws of developed countries, our businessmen to get rid of bureaucratic hurdles, customs duties should not be like a robbery, in human resources policy, the preference is to be given to professionals with national consciousness and spirit, so that we can send books in our language to our compatriots living in the parts of beyond the Azerbaijani boundaries, which are divided, at the expense of our state.
For this, we set out on a journey. As it is said “the road belongs to those who are on the way”. No one is a monopolist on this way. It is an honor to be a companion on this way, though it is difficult. We also need to be friends with each other. Because only in this manner do we think we can build the lifestyle we deserve.
Dear compatriots, now the choice is ours. We are the ones who chose, and so are the chosen ones. We all have to decide: should we be the object of the processes that take place before our eyes, or should we be the subject of those processes that we direct with our free will?
Therefore, every founding member of the Rising Party invites each of you to join our party. Let's unite, strengthen and rise for the sake of this day of our homeland, the future of our nation, the eternity of our independence!
Long live our nation!
Long live Rising Azerbaijan!
