Aliaksandr Kazulin, candidate for the presidency in 2006, believes that it is impossible to participate in a fiction.

"It is possible to participate in something that is valid", Aliaksandr Kazulin, candidates for the presidency in 2006, answered questions of Radio Svaboda.

This summer Kazulin talked about impossibility to participate in "elections" and reminded that the opposition was not going to participate in them, when at least one political prisoner was behind bars. Now, when all of them are at large, he has not changed his position.

"Do you know what amendments were made to the electoral legislation after the last parliamentary elections? Kazulin asks. - A boycott was also mentioned. One part of the opposition supported it, the other one was against. But... As soon as the government saw what the boycott really meant, the electoral legislation was amended. "Boycott" was prohibited. Therefore, you can make conclusions".

What should candidates-2015 do? Kazulin has no answer. He sees no real candidates.

"There are no real candidates, he specifies. - People who... If you know what I mean, than you see no candidates".

Aliaksandr Kazulin is sure that the idea of the boycott is pretty popular in the society:

"You'd better ask your acquaintances, he says. –Will there be at least one of the twenty who believe that elections are fair? Then you'll have an answer".
