Azerbaijan, Baku, March 1 / Trend T.Hajiyev /
Azadlig Party Chairman Ahmad Oruj is the main culprit in the dissolution of the Union for Democracy, Chief of the Organizational Department of the Classic Popular Front Party of Azerbaijan (CPFPA) Khazar Teyyublu told Trend.
He added that following the parliamentary elections in 2010, Oruj become despondent and often included a review of the union's activity in the agenda.
"At least this issue was tabled at the Council of the Board of the Union for Democracy and an agreement was reached to dissolve the union. But then Oruj and Vugar Bayturan, for some political reasons, or as dictated by certain political forces, have attempted to create the idea that supposedly the union did not cease its activities," Teyyublu said.
He said Oruj and Bayturan held a meeting somewhere and tried to artificially breathe new life into the union.
"Regardless of these various actions, the union ceased its activity, and this organization has become a part of the glorious history of Azerbaijan," Teyyublu said.
"All of the events were organized by the CPFPA and held in our headquarters. Four years ago, its creation was necessary, but today this is not necessary, and the organization ceased its activities," he said.
The Union for Democracy was established in 2007. It included the National Salvation Party, Liberty and Free Azerbaijan. The union was an advisory body for political forces.
Earlier, the CPFPA disseminated information about the termination of the Union for Democracy.
