The leaders of the Centre-Right Coalition — Chairman of the Movement For Freedom (MFF) Yuri Hubarevich, Co-Chairman of the Belarusian Christian Democracy (BCD) party Vital Rimasheuski, and Acting Chairman of the United Civil Party (UCP) Mikalay Kazlou — held a press conference today, where they told about their plans and current activities.

“Our joint policy of teamwork remains unchanged. One of the major issues facing us is preparing for the 2020 presidential election. We are beginning to prepare in several areas, and it isn’t only the election of a single candidate,” said MFF Chairman Yuri Hubarevich.

He confirmed that the centre-rightists won’t be dispersed, and they will have a single candidate. “The things we’re working right now is a programme for a single candidate. It is equally important,” said the politician. The total number of topics for the programme is more than ten, including local self-government, pension reform, healthcare, education, electoral law, etc.

The MFF head urged everyone to join in the development of this programme so that the programme of a single candidate from the centre-rightists is truly the people’s programme.

The politician thinks that the presidential elections are to some extent a tool — an opportunity to show people that there is an alternative and that we can live differently than we do now. “Uniting is important for us. The Centre-Right Coalition does have a potential,” said the politician, and added that they would welcome the joining of other representatives of the democratic forces.

The programme for a single candidate will be completed next year. “At present, we are negotiating on the single candidate’s election procedure. In the beginning of the next year, we could talk about the launch of the procedure and the subsequent election of a single candidate from the centre-rightists,” added the politician.

Hubarevich expressed his confidence that the Centre-Right Coalition will collect 100,000 signatures required to nominate a candidate for presidential elections.
