Belarusian opposition leader Sviatlana Tsikhanouvskaya said she has no plans to run for president again. She stated this during a working visit to the United States, according to The National Interest.

"I am not ready to participate in new elections," Tsikhanovuskaya said.

According to her, Belarus first of all needs a "good manager" who can rebuild the country. She could serve instead as "a moral authority". Furthermore, she avers that Lukashenko’s rule "can’t last long."

At the same time, Tsikhanovuskaya made it clear that she is looking to the Biden administration to bolster the beleaguered opposition and democratize Belarus, stating "With Biden’s help we will prevail."

To remind, on July 18, Tsikhanouvskaya met with officials of US State Department and White House in Washington.

As it was reported earlier, after 2020 president's elections in Belarus, the oppositionist Sviatlana Tsikhanouvskaya left the country for Lithuania.

Later, Tsikhanouvskaya was declared wanted in Russia. However, a few months later, Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs expelled Belarusian politician from the interstate search base at the initiative of Belarusian law enforcement agencies.
