Legitimate parliament elected in Belarus

MINSK, 24 September (BelTA) – A legitimate parliament of 109 members has been elected in Belarus, Chairwoman of the Central Election Commission (CEC) of Belarus Lidia Yermoshina told media on 24 September.

“Only one constituency has failed to elect an MP. It is the Novobelitsky election constituency in Gomel Oblast,” explained Lidia Yermoshina. She added that the elections in the constituency are valid but there was no alternative to the single candidate. Since an absolute majority of the voters has not voted for the candidate, a rerun election will be arranged.

The CEC head said that most likely elections in this constituency will be combined with another election campaign. “Elections of members of local councils are the nearest campaign”.
