MINSK, July 20. /TASS/. Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said on Monday he did not rule out numerous ‘invectives’ against his country during the presidential campaign, urging parliamentarians to boost outreach activities in election constituencies in view of that.
"Deputies are informed and politically active people, it is necessary that they explain to their voters different difficult aspects or proposals by our opponents," Lukashenko said at a meeting with the speaker of the lower house of parliament, Vladimir Andreichenko.
He said, however, it was necessary to avoid populism, avoid promises that could not be fulfilled, not to deceive the people.
The president said Belarusians were not the people who could be misled by election promises. "A deputy is the person who should insure our society against excessive hopes that someone will load them with money," the Belarusian leader added.
The presidential election in the country is scheduled for October 11. The Belarusian Central Election Commission has given a green light to eight initiative groups for nominating presidential candidates to collect signatures.
