Today, the start of formation of the ‘Popular Vote’ campaign headquarters was announced, and receipt of applications began from potential candidates to participate in determining a single candidate from the democratic forces of Belarus at the forthcoming presidential election. Chairman of the Movement For Freedom (MFF) Yuri Hubarevich was the first to file an application.

In accordance with the Popular Vote participation procedure, Hubarevich submitted an extract to the headquarters from the decision of the MFF Conference on his nomination. This decision was taken in December 2018, when the organization leader was nominated candidate in the presidential election of 2020 and in the Coalition’s primaries.

“I have serious plans to participate and win in the primaries. I’m ready to represent the interests of a wide range of people who are committed to the European values, democracy, and national revival,” said Hubarevich after filing his application.

The politician is convinced that if not only the activists of democratic organizations take part in the Popular Vote campaign but also the majority of citizens who are demanding change, we can expect to win.

As was previously reported, the representatives of five political structures — the United Civil Party (UCP), the Belarusian Social Democratic Party (BSDP), the Belarusian Christian Democracy (BCD), the Movement For Freedom (MFF), and the Belarusian Popular Front Party (BPF) — held their joint press conference on January 27, where they announced the start of the procedure to elect a single presidential candidate.

And now, the Popular Vote primaries headquarters have been created. In accordance with the introduced procedure, the applications from those wishing to participate in the procedure shall be accepted between today and February 16. The applications will be considered until March 3, followed by online voting and trips to the regions.
