MINSK, September 23 (Itar-Tass) — Belarus’ President Alexander Lukashenko believes the opposition at the parliamentary elections, organised in the country on Sunday, has demonstrated its failure.
“By having revoked its candidates, the opposition has demonstrated its complete failure,” he told reporters on Sunday. “They are cowards who have nothing to tell to the people. If they have started the political fight – then do fight. If you are a coward – you are a failed politician.”
Lukashenko did not rule out after the parliamentary elections the situation with participation of the opposition may be of any kind.
“The main show usually starts after elections. Absurdities of any kind happen after elections,” he said. As the results are calculated “and somebody have them analysed, that would be the time the show begins.”
Lukashenko said he was not involved in the current election campaign due to being busy. He hopes that educated people, able to draft laws, would come to the parliament.
The president hopes Belarusians should vote actively at the elections. He said that usually 70-80 percent of the nation votes, at presidential elections – over 90.
“This means, our people are conscious and do believe in the power,” Lukashenko said.
