Belarus president: OSCE can send all the election observers it deems necessary

Belarus president: OSCE can send all the election observers it deems necessary

MINSK, 16 June (BelTA) – The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) will be able to send all the representatives the organization deems necessary for monitoring the presidential election in Belarus. Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko made the statement as he met with OSCE Secretary General Lamberto Zannier and OSCE ODIHR Director Michael Georg Link on 16 June, BelTA has learned.

Alexander Lukashenko remarked that the OSCE is an organization that very seriously monitors the election process. “I cannot say we are satisfied with how it is done. Not because you criticize us more often than mention something positive. No, not because of that but because the OSCE still lacks common approaches, universal rules for monitoring an election,” said the President. The head of state added that together with ex-USSR republics Belarus once came up with the possible options for such approaches. “I think that they will be discussed and adopted at least one day. But life goes on. We may agree or disagree with something, we may criticize each other or not. Nevertheless, we have commitments to honor before the OSCE in this regard,” stressed the Belarusian leader.

A presidential election campaign is to take place in Belarus this year. “You may rest assured that we have invited all your representatives that you deem necessary to send for the sake of monitoring the election process,” said Alexander Lukashenko.
