MINSK, September 23 (Itar-Tass) — Belarusian citizens will elect on Sunday 110 deputies of the House of Representatives, the lower chamber of the National Assembly of Belarus (parliament).
Throughout the country over 6,300 election stations opened at 8 o’clock in the morning /09:00 Moscow time/. The electing will continue to 20:00.
Besides, over 40 election stations have opened or will open shortly in 33 countries, including Azerbaijan and Armenia for the first time.
About 7,080 thousand voters are included in voter lists. Voting would be possible on presentation of not only a passport, but also driving licenses, students’ identification, retirees’ identification or a document of a state official.
According to the local legislation, the elections in every of 110 districts would be valid if over 50 percent of voters participate in them. Thus, Lidiya Yermoshina, head of the Central Elections Commission, stressed on Saturday importance of attendance at every election district would be very important. She also predicted it would be over 50 percent at every district. “I am sure that the elections will be valid,” she said. Her optimism is caused first of all by the fact that over 20 percent of electors had participated in early voting.
However, different circumstances may affect the attendance. Bad weather, for example. The forecast for many regions of the country is rain, gusty winds and the air temperature not more than 11-13 degrees.
It is also noteworthy that electors may react to the opposition’s urges to boycott the parliamentary elections.
