Azerbaijan, Baku / corr. Trend S.Ilhamgizi / Mirmahmud Miralioglu, the co-founder of the Union for Democracy and also the chairman of the Azerbaijan Classic National Front Party (CNFP), stated on 5 July that the large opposition parties refused to join the Union as they depend on foreign and internal forces.
