Belarus demonstrates transparency of its electoral system to world community

Belarus demonstrates transparency of its electoral system to world community

MINSK, 7 October (BelTA) – Belarus is glad to have an opportunity to demonstrate the transparency of its electoral system to the world community, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said at the meeting with Belarusian MPs on 7 October, BelTA has learned.

According to the head of state, the parliamentary elections were a serious test for Belarus because they took place in very complicated conditions. “The main reason is that we had to eradicate the prejudice in western countries that Belarus does not observe democratic norms during the nationwide voting. However, these democratic norms have not been specified yet,” the Belarusian leader noted. “Therefore, the entire election process was monitored by numerous foreign observers who had been invited from the West and from the East.”

The President stressed that Belarus invited even more observers than the West had expected. “We are glad to demonstrate the transparency of our electoral system and the legitimacy of government bodies to the world community,” Alexander Lukashenko said.

In his words, the Belarusian side welcomed constructive recommendations of foreign colleagues regarding the improvement of the election legislation. “We welcome everything that benefits us and does not contradict the interests of the Belarusian nation,” the head of state stressed.
