The Azerbaijan Popular Front (Azərbaycan Xalq Cəbhəsi Partiyası) is the main opposition political party in Azerbaijan, founded in 1992 by Abulfez Elchibey. It has split into two factions, a 'reform' version, and an 'origina' version, led by Ali Karimli and Mirmahmud Mirali-Oglu, respectively. At the last elections (5 november 2000 and 7 january 2001), the party won 11.0 % of the popular vote and 6 out of 125 seats in the Azerbaijan National Assembly. Its candidate Qudrat Hasanquliyev won only 0.4 % of the popular vote in the 15 october 2003 presidential elections.
