YABLOKO begins negotiations on a single candidate for the presidential elections

By Natalia Panshina

MOSCOW, December 9 (Itar-Tass) -- YABLOKO has begun negotiations with democratic forces on the nomination of a single candidate for the president elections in 2004, said the YABLOKO leader Grigory Yavlinsky at a press conference on Tuesday.

He also said YABLOKO had had two days of active consultations with the Union of Right-Wing Forces. Yavlinsky said that chances were rather high because the two parties felt approximately the same after their defeat in the parliament elections.

Yavlinsky said that former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev and his Social Democratic Party might take part in the coalition.

Yavlinsky said the candidate would be discussed in detail and very seriously.

Soon YABLOKO will hold a congress to define future tasks. The main task of YABLOKO is to preserve itself as a party, Yavlinsky said.

He thinks that YABLOKO and the Union of Right-Wing Forces will have very big problems, especially after the presidential elections.
