Former presidential candidate of Belarus Svetlana Tikhanovskaya gave a positive assessment to the decision of politician Viktor Babariko and his supporters to create an opposition party “Together” in the country. This is stated in a statement released by the press service of the politician’s headquarters on September 1 on Telegram.

However, she disagreed with Babariko’s assertion that constitutional reform is the top priority for the opposition.
