UDF claim that they have not been invited to join Makei’s Council

The United Democratic Forces have not received any official invitation to send their representatives to the Civil Consulting Council of the President’s Administration. It is said in a special appeal of the presidium of the UDF political council. The document says that “the status, power and the structure of the council are still vague” and that it will be possible to assess the organ only taking “the results of its activities aimed at the democratization of all spheres of civil and political life” into account. 

The administration of the UDF has claimed that democratic forces are ready for an open dialogue with the authorities “when it comes to issues important for the Belarusian society”.
