According to the published data, the first appointments have taken place. So, the government has already included two people. A well-known Belarusian lawyer and human rights activist who has been a lawyer in many human rights cases in Belarus, including the cases of Pavlo Sheremet and Dmitry Zavadsky, has been appointed as a representative for human rights.
Ales Alekhnovich, vice president of the analytical center CASE-Belarus, will be responsible for economic reforms in Belarus.
"Alexander Lukashenko’s regime is not only illegitimate, it no longer copes with its tasks. We cannot stay idle and watch the country plunge more and more into crisis," Tsikhanouskaya stated.
According to the press secretary of the head of the Coordination Council Anna Krasulina, Tsikhanouskaya began to form her own team. At the same time, all the actions of the head of the opposition were coordinated with other members of the Coordination Council, it is expected that some of them will enter the new government.
As it was reported earlier, leader of the Belarusian opposition Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya and President of France Emmanuel Macron held a meeting in Vilnius and discussed the settlement of the political crisis and release of the political prisoners of Belarus. French President also promised to help in negotiations with the Belarusian authorities.
