The turnout of voters in early voting in the presidential elections in Belarus for five days was 41.7%. This was announced on Sunday, August 9, by the chairman of the republic’s Central Election Commission, Lidia Yermoshina, on the air of the Belarus-1 TV channel.

“This figure is already 41.7%. Moreover, the elections were held in the Gomel region, there are already more than 50%, ”she said.

A day earlier, the incumbent president of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, called on the agrarians not to “pull” for the sake of elections, so as not to distract them from their work.

“Here in Minsk, some people are sucking on beer on a bench, then they got excited, ran, sat down again, drank. This, of course, is not for the peasants, ”he said.

The Central Election Commission registered five candidates – Andrey Dmitriev, Anna Kanopatskaya, Alexander Lukashenko, Svetlana Tikhanovskaya, Sergey Cherechnya. Two applicants – Viktor Babariko and Valery Tsepkalo – were denied registration.

Earlier, on July 16, the headquarters of Tikhanovskaya, as well as those who did not pass registration Tsepkalo and Babariko, announced that they were uniting.

The current president, Alexander Lukashenko, has been in office since 1994. If he wins, this will be the sixth term.
