Yarmoshyna cannot stand boycott
14:25, — Politics
Appels to boycott “elections” will be classified as mass public events.
This statement was made today by head of the Belarusian Central Election Commission (CEC) Lidzia Yarmoshyna, BelTA news agency reports.
A provision relating to “elections” boycott will not disappear from the electoral legislation, but it will be removed from the section on campaigning, the CEC head explains.
“Calling to boycott will be possible under the rules of all mass public events, but not on the simplified application procedure for the money from budget funds. It will be independent activity of candidates, parties and individuals without the preferences offered by the [electoral] legislation,” Lidzia Yarmoshyna said.
Taking into account that mass public events are in fact phorobited in Belarus, such plans mean that carrying out a boycott campaign will be impossible. The authorities seem to make conclusions after the failure of the election farce on September 23.
