Speaking on the air of the ICTV channel, he said his new force with include people with "positive reputation".

"It is clear that this will be a political force that will unite people with good reputation, people who can not only speak but actually do things, those who will be committed to the country. I do not want to be a statist in the next political season, I want to be active, I want to fight for ideas, I want to introduce them,” he said.

He also spoke in favour of changing the electoral legislation.

"If we do not change the electoral system in the country, then a new parliament, which will be elected under the old system, will become our biggest disappointment in two or three months," he said.
