Minsk Council of national deputies was established during yesterday’s session of Minsk city coalition of democratic forces which now has even more members.

 

That sitting of the enlarged Minsk coalition was attended by representatives of the Belarusian Christian Democracy, BNF party, United Civil Party, Young Front and its new members – solidarity movement “Together” and Coordinating council of Minsk entrepreneurs.

 

In accordance with the decision made during the session, Minsk Council of national deputies consists of all those activists who took part in the last election campaign, representing the organizations who are members of the coalition. Dzianis Sadouski, secretary of the BCD, was elected the Council’s coordinator.

 

Mr Sadouski says there will be a meeting within the next two weeks where all the members of this newly established body will work out their plans and define the activities they will be involved in.

 

“First of all, we will work hard to solve the most urgent social problems which disturb the residents of Minsk. But we are also aware of the upcoming presidential elections, so we are going to use our potential and resources to organize observation of the elections and to nominate the Council’s representatives to be members of election commissions, working at polling stations”. Dzianis Sadouski informed.

 

 The participants of that session of Minsk city coalition of democratic forces also decided to support and help the committee, organizing the celebration of the 20th anniversary of proclamation of the independence of Belarus. Uladzimir Lazouski, representative of the independent trade unions, will be responsible for that.

 

Let us remind you that it was the initiative of the Belarusian Christian Democracy to arrange an unconventional celebration of the 20th anniversary of proclamation of independence of Belarus which took place on the 27th of July 1990 when the Supreme Council of the BSSR approved the Declaration of independence.

 

Vital Rymasheuski, BCD presidential candidate, comments on the results of the session.

“I am glad that Minsk city coalition of democratic forces has resumed its activities, and that there are even more members in it now. It is vital to work together in an association which unites democratic activists rather than separates them. Especially now, as we often hear about arguments and mutual accusations between certain political forces. We should not forget about how much unites us”.
