The initiative group to collect signatures in support of Milinkevich as the presidential candidate may number from 5 to 6000 people.
This is "Radio Liberty" said vice-chairman the movement "For Freedom" Yuri Gubarevich:
"We will hold three stages of formation of the initiative group. The first is actually completed. We appealed to the activists of the "For Freedom" mainly in the regions. They wrote a special declaration of consent to participate in the initiative group, and completed a questionnaire. And today we have more than a thousand of such documents.
The second phase will work on the creation of an electoral bloc. It will include partner organizations who also want to participate in the election campaign of Alexander Milinkevich. And so we are planning to increase the number of the initiative group at the expense of the members of these organizations.
The third stage — access to broad circles of society. Milinkevich today, perhaps the most well-known personality among active opposition politicians. And so we turn to the people who support it, with the offer to join the common cause. Thus, at the time of submission of documents to the CEC, we expect to reach the group of 5-6 thousand people. "
