MINSK, September 24 (Itar-Tass) — Representatives of the Belarusian opposition at the Sunday parliamentary elections in Belarus failed to win seats in the House of Representatives (lower house).
The country’s Central Election Commission (CEC) on Monday made public the names of the candidates who, according to preliminary data, have been elected to the House of Representatives. Among those who passed to the new parliament there are three members of the Communist Party of Belarus and a member of the Agrarian Party. All of them support the policy course of the Belarusian authorities.
Representatives of the For Freedom movement and the Belarusian left-wing party Fair World were the authorities’ opponents that took part in the election campaign. Two other major opposition parties - the Belarusian Popular Front and the United Civil Party, withdrew their candidates from the election race.
According to the election results, a total of 109 deputies have been elected to the House of Representatives (that has a total of 110 seats).
Five opposition parties and movements - the Party of the Belarusian Popular Front, the Belarusian Social Democratic Party Hramada, the Belarusian Left Party Fair World, the movement For Freedom and the organising committee for the creation of the Tell the Truth public association - have already announced that they do not recognise the election results.
