MOSCOW, August 18 (RIA Novosti) - Chechen presidential nominee Alu Alkhanov promises to continue the policy of Akhmad Kadyrov, who died in the May 9 terrorist act. Our policies will not differ, Mr. Alkhanov told a press conference in Moscow.

"Akhmad Kadyrov pursued the policy of peace and stability in Chechnya. I can only agree with it", Alu Alkhanov said.

"Chechnya must develop with account for the market economy", he noted.

Unification of Chechen society was the key goal of the policy course of the first Chechen president, he believes.

"There can be neither peace nor tranquillity without consolidation of all segments of society; this is a wise and correct policy towards unification of our people", Mr. Alkhanov noted.

He described the social and political situation in Chechnya as satisfactory.

"Our society is affected towards the election. Here, the opinions of its different segments coincide", Alu Alkhanov said.

He is convinced that, whatever the outcome of the presidential election is, Ramzan Kadyrov will be among the leaders of Chechnya. Now, he is the first vice-premier.

"Ramzan Kadyrov fights against crime, Wahhabism and terrorism. I hope that he will inevitably show himself as a principled leader taking to heart changes in Chechnya. He is the right man in the right place and will do much good to the people of Chechnya and Russia in general", Alu Alkhanov said.

In his words, Ramzan Kadyrov's assuming office in the Chechen government has noticeably boosted work and now we see serious results of the fight against terrorism and banditry.
