Belarus CEC head: I cannot complain about lack of observers

MINSK, 23 September (BelTA) – One cannot complain about the lack of observers at the present parliamentary elections in Belarus, Chairwoman of the Central Election Commission (CEC) Lidia Yermoshina told media on 23 September.

“We’ve never seen anything like that but some observers have filed complaints that they had been removed from polling stations. At least five people across Belarus. But you know there are very many observers. About 30,000 domestic ones at least. Therefore, one cannot complain about the lack of observation,” said Lidia Yermoshina.

She also said: “During the day I said that we were getting a small number of complaints. Many of them were related to different problems, not elections. Citizens tried to resolve their problems, including problems with housing and utilities”. The CEC head explained that by the end of the voting day, roughly after 16:00 they started getting complaints related to elections.

Lidia Yermoshina also stated that the elections had been recognized valid and a quorum House of Representatives of the National Assembly had been elected. The first session will begin in October 2012. It has been reported earlier that the last session of the fourth-convocation of the House of Representatives of the National Assembly will begin on 2 October.
