MINSK, September 24 (Itar-Tass) — The Belarusian Central Election Commission (CEC) does not yet have information if representatives of parties have passed to the republic’s parliament as a result of the elections that ended several hours ago, CEC head Lidia Yermoshina reported.
She also expressed doubt that any representative of the opposition parties has won seats in the House of Representatives of the country’s National Assembly. “It’s doubtful. None of the regions have reported that,” she said at a press conference, answering journalists’ questions about the possible passing of the opposition to parliament.
Yermoshina added that the exact list with the names of all the parliament members will be posted on the CEC website later on Monday. “Let’s put it off,” the CEC head proposed.
According to earlier reports, 109 of 110 MPs have been elected in the Belarusian parliamentary elections. According to Yermoshina, in one of the districts that was formed in the Gomel Region, the elections were non-alternative. And there, she said, the candidate did not get the votes of “the absolute majority of the electorate.” “In this connection, a rerun election will be held in this electoral district,” the CEC head said.
According to the CEC leadership, the total voter turnout in the country was 74.3 percent. The highest voter turnout was in the Vitebsk Region - 81.1 percent.
