Belarus Parliamentary Elections 2012

23 Sep 2012

Belarus parliament elections valid in all constituencies

MINSK, 23 September (BelTA) – The parliamentary elections have been recognized valid in all the 110 constituencies of Belarus, Secretary of the Central Election Commission (CEC) of Belarus Nikolai Lozovik told media on 23 September.

“Voters are rather vigorously taking part in the voting process. One can say that the elections in the Republic of Belarus are done,” said Nikolai Lozovik.

As of 18:00 on 23 September as many as 65.9% of the voters took part in the elections. The figure stood at 64.2% in Brest Oblast, 73.1% in Vitebsk Oblast, 68.9% in Gomel Oblast, 67.1% in Grodno Oblast, 67.2% in Minsk Oblast, 72.5% in Mogilev Oblast, 53.6% in the city of Minsk, and 61.6% at polling stations abroad.

Speaking about the progress of the election campaign, Nikolai Lozovik said that it was going on in a calm manner. “Certainly, if we compare our elections to those in Ukraine, then Ukrainian elections are likely to involve more mass events, rallies, pickets, and tent camps. Elections over there are kind of a national pastime held virtually every year,” said the CEC Secretary. In his opinion, the progress of the election campaign is to a certain degree related to the economic situation in the country. “The fact that our country is holding the elections in a calm manner, without swaying left and right, means that the economy operates steadily and calmly,” said the official.
