The People’s Anti-Crisis Administration “will also solve problems the country is facing from the moment the ex-president leaves until new elections and transfer of power to the new government,” the statement informed.
PAA will be led by Latushko. He informed that the anti-crisis management team to help the headquarters of ex-presidential candidate Svetlana Tikhanovskaya and the Coordinating Council “comes up with specific proposals: how to eliminate the causes of crisis; how to achieve the start of negotiations; how to correct the situation in the economy; how to restore the rule of law and others.” The composition of the people’s anti-crisis management is being formed.
Tikhanovskaya thanked Belarusians for participating in the strike.
In turn, ex-presidential candidate Svetlana Tikhanovskaya positively assessed the national strike that took place on October 26, despite the small number of its participants.

Tikhanovskaya called the protesters being “heroes”. According to her, ” Belarusian people have shown they are ready to fight against the dictatorship.”
