CEC: One of 2020 election campaigns needs to be held in November 2019

MINSK (BelTA) - There is a need to hold one of the Belarusian election campaigns scheduled for 2020 in November 2019, Chairperson of the Central Election Commission (CEC) of Belarus Lidia Yermoshina said in an interview to Belarus One TV channel, BelTA has learned.

“I think that one election campaign should be held in the end of 2019. November 2019 is an ideal period for the campaign,” the CEC head said.

Lidia Yermoshina noted that it would be difficult for the election commissions that consist of social activists to hold the presidential and parliamentary election campaigns in one year, 2020. “Apart from that, two election campaigns will politicize the atmosphere very much. This will not be to the benefit of the society as there is a possibility of the political and public situation to be destabilized. I think they will be held in different years,” she concluded.
