No changes are planned in the work of the Coordination Council (CC) of the Belarusian opposition or the creation of new similar structures. This was reported in the press service of the structure on November 20.

Earlier in the day, the German newspaper Der Spiegel published an interview with Nobel laureate Svetlana Aleksievich, who was credited with the words about the new COP. The names of this structure are kept secret.

“The journalists misunderstood the words of Svetlana (Aleksievich). It is not planned to make any changes to the work of the Coordinating Council in the near future, as well as to create new structures, “RIA Novosti quotes a statement from the Constitutional Court.

Last week, President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko said that the oppositionists who left the republic would not be able to take the country “lukewarm.”

In addition, in early November, Lukashenka also guaranteed the holding of new elections in the republic, but this is possible on condition that the Belarusians make such a decision.

Presidential elections were held in Belarus on August 9. According to the Central Election Commission, Lukashenka won. Those who disagreed with this outcome took to the streets, and citizen discontent spilled over into mass protests across the country.

The creation of the opposition Constitutional Court to transfer power in Belarus was initiated by the former presidential candidate Svetlana Tikhanovskaya. Later she left for Lithuania.

Belarusian law enforcement agencies have opened a criminal case on the establishment of the council. According to Lukashenko, the emergence of alternative government bodies in the country is unacceptable and will be punished according to the law.
