Under the heading above, Alexei Poplavsky wrote in Gazeta Rowe about the reasons why Trump’s opponents are forming a new party.
The article said: More than 120 former US Republican officials are discussing forming a new party, in response to the Republican Party’s reluctance to oppose former President Donald Trump and his attempts to undermine American democracy.
According to Reuters, the meeting’s participants called for a return to “principled conservatism” values, the basis of which Trump is said to have violated the commitment to the constitution and the rule of law.
After the meeting, Trump’s opponents laid out two possible options for their next steps. The first concerns the formation of a new center-right party, called the Integrity Party or the Center-Right Party; The second concerns the formation of a political bloc inside or outside the Republican Party, and the designation of the “center-right Republicans” is being considered.
In this regard, the scientific director of the Valdai International Discussion Club, Fedor Lukyanov, wonders whether the opponents of the former president were able to gain the necessary weight, if they formed a new party, and he says: This is a somewhat controversial question. The system has managed to overcome attempts to undermine it, so many doubt that this is possible, in principle, in the United States. In light of historical precedents, this skepticism can be understood, but at the present time the situation in the country is very exceptional.
In the United States, from Lukyanov’s point of view, a split is noticeable in the two main parties, into a more radical wing and a centrist one. This process is not related to leaders like Trump, but rather with a change in the structure and interests of society.
