Video: Presidential aspirant Mikhalevich unveils election program

Opposition politician Ales Mikhalevich, who plans to run for presidency in Belarus’ next election, has unveiled his election program.
The program identifies the politician`s three major priorities: the country’s economic growth, the development of an efficient state and the participation of citizens in the government’s decision-making.
“Compared with the programs of other politicians, mine is more realistic,” Mr. Mikhalevich, a former deputy chairman of the Belarusian Popular Front (BPF), said at the presentation event held in Minsk on Thursday. “We do not declare abstract goals that cannot be fulfilled in the near future.”
To ensure Belarus’ economic growth, the country should become “attractive, competitive, predictable, businesslike, enterprising, fertile, mobile and innovative,” Mr. Mikhalevich says in his program.
The politician promises to increase the level of economic freedom, create better conditions for private businesses, reduce the government’s involvement, cut the tax burden on companies and introduce an economic amnesty plan for those convicted of economic crimes.
In the section on the efficient state, described as a fair, free, strong, decent, efficient, diplomatic and comfortable Belarus, Mr. Mikhalevich says that he would aim to increase control over the operation of public institutions, enhance the environment for political parties, increase the role of the parliament, introduce elections to elect the heads of the city and regional governments and reform electoral regulations.
The politician says that Belarus also needs an active society – "independent, educated, healthy and cultural people." He calls for a territorial reform and increased role of local self-government.
Mr. Mikhalevich told reporters that he would unveil his complete election program, on more than 100 pages, this fall.
He said that he was an advocate of a moratorium on the death penalty and opposed the construction of a nuclear power plant in the country. “The nuclear power plans, as formulated today, are inefficient and conflict with the Belarus brand that we will promote in the international market,” he said.
Mr. Mikhalevich said that he was also an advocate of Belarus’ neutrality and had no plans to bring the country closer to NATO.
As for the European Union, he said that the country’s admission might become a priority. But it is not included into the current program, he said.
On relations with Russia, the politician said that he would also push for the country’s “withdrawal from the Union State and the development of just good trade, economic and political bilateral ties.”
The politician introduced to reporters his team consisting of five people: philosopher Ihar Drako, economists Ales Lukashevich and Viktar Yawmenenka, scholar Kanstantsin Lukashow and pharmacist Danuta Chyhyr.
