National Committee of United Democratic Forces Satisfied with its Work this Year

The National Committee of the United Democratic Forces (UDF) is satisfied with the results of its work in 2009, Anatol Lyabedzka, chairman of the Committee, told BelaPAN.

The Committee includes representatives of various political organizations and the expert community, said Mr. Lyabedzka, leader of the United Civic Party.

"Devising the UDF's Anti-crisis Platform and campaigning for free elections have been the focus of our work this year," he said. "The government has used our ideas to a greater or lesser extent."

The government took some provisions of the Anti-crisis Platform into account while making decisions aimed at liberalizing the economy, Mr. Lyabedzka said.

Some of the Committee's recommendations may be reflected in the amendments to the Electoral Code that have been proposed by the central election commission, he said.

The Committee has also conducted a major information campaign this year, Mr. Lyabedzka said. "We've distributed more than 300,000 copies of registered newspapers alone," he said. "They contained information about the Anti-crisis Platform."

The Committee plans to soon devise recommendations for improving the performance of the public health, education and the housing and utility services sectors, Mr. Lyabedzka said.
