The 10th congress of the Yabloko Association which will transform it into a political party will take place in Moscow on December 22-23, 2001. Such a decision was adopted at a meeting of the Central Council of the Yabloko Association on Sunday November 11, 2001.

The congress will discuss the draft charter of the party as well as draft programme documents. The November meeting of the Central Council was devoted to a discussion of these drafts.

The Saturday discussion on the draft charter lasted for twelve hours, and Sunday polemics on programme documents lasted for four hours. It was decided to submit the draft charter and draft programme documents to a general discussion in Yabloko.

The regional branches of the association and Yabloko members should submit their proposals, comments and amendments by December 1, 2001. The Charter Commission will consider the proposals to the draft charter on December 8-9.
