London: The leaders of Britain's coalition government say a legislative program that they hope will keep them in power together until a 2015 election has been finalised.

Prime Minister David Cameron and Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg planned to publish full details of a joint agreement between their Conservative and Liberal Democrat parties on Thursday.

The parties entered a coalition after Britain's national election on May 06 denied any party an outright majority.

They have devised plans for spending cuts to reduce Britain's deficit, an overhaul of the education system, strengthening civil liberties and redefining the country's role in Europe.

In a joint statement, the leaders said they were "confident that we can take the country through difficult times."
