MINSK, September 28 (Itar-Tass) — The newly-elected lower house of the Belarussian parliament will meet in session for the first time on October 18, the head of the Central Election Commission, Lidiya Yermoshina, has said.
“Under the Constitution the Central Election Commission is empowered to convene the first session of the House of Representatives and the Council of the Republic (upper house). The newly-elected parliament shall begin sessions no later than thirty days after the elections,” the CEC said.
The CEC earlier on Friday approved of the results of September 23 elections to the lower house of parliament. It also registered 56 members of the Council of the Republic, elected on September 25. The senators will gather for their first meeting on October 19.
