Azerbaijan, Baku, July 14 /Trend, T.Hajiyev/
The Union for Democracy (UD) does not intend to join APFP-Musavat cooperation.
"Joining the APFP-Musavat cooperation is shameful for us," the chairman of Azerbaijan Classical Popular Front Party, which is UD member,
Mirmahmud Miralioglu told Trend.
Opposition Azerbaijan Popular Front Party (APFP), which is part of Azadlyg bloc, has decided to start negotiations with the Musavat Party to establish an election bloc. This decision caused a strong reaction by other parties represented in Azadlyg bloc, and the termination of the bloc's activities was announced.
It is reported that the UD will also be presented in this election bloc.
"As Union for Democracy we have appealed both to Musavat Party and Azadlyg bloc," Miralioghlu said.
"These appeals contained proposals on cooperation in the pre-election period. Musavat Party evaluated the proposal and a protocol on intentions was signed. But we have received a negative response from Azadlyg bloc. They did not want to discuss with us this issue. Therefore, we conduct consultations with the Musavat Party," said the chairman of the party.
Union for Democracy was founded by the opposition Classic Popular Front Party, Azadlig party and National Democracy Party after 2005 parliamentary election. Great Azerbaijan Party joined the union in early Sept. 2008 and People's Party - in Nov. The Union is advisory and cooperation body.
Azadlyg bloc unites three opposition parties - Azerbaijan Popular Front Party (APFP), Azerbaijan Liberal Party (ALP) and Citizen and Development Party (SDP).
