Opposition leaders, Mikalai Statkevich, Anatol Lyabedzka, Uladzimir Nyaklyayew, during a joint press conference in Minsk, October 11 evening, urged the international community not to recognize the results of the presidential elections in Belarus, BelaPAN. According to Nyaklyaeu, opposition leaders gathered to say: "We do not recognize these elections, played as an electoral performance of the Belarusian regime". There are more than enough reasons for it, he added.
“It's not only the data of independent observers, but also the fact that the authority had carried out a fraud, - said the politician. - Never before has the regime driven the people to the polls for early voting, where, as shows the experience of previous campaigns, one hundred percent falsification took place”.
In turn, the leader of the United Civil Party Anatol Lyabedzka highlighted that it is important not only to prevent the recognition of the elections, but also the legitimacy of Lukashenko in the international arena.
