Pavel Sevyarynets: Farce failed
15:47, — Politics
The authorities failed to force Belarusians to vote.
Political prisoner Pavel Sevyarynets, a co-head of Belarusian Christian democracy party, comments on the outcome of the “parliamentary election” for charter97.org.
“There was no 'election'. It was a farce. It was an attempt of the regime to force Belarusians to vote, but it failed. Our observers report voter turnout was very low. The farce failed. Ballot rigging, substitution of ballots and ballot boxes are crimes. These crimes committed by the authorities against Belarusians, against the people of Belarus, against God. Depriving Belarusians of the right of choice is devilry. Even God gives people the choice either to believe in him or not,” the politician said.
“The authorities announced their results. These results are lies. The election was invalid,” the political prisoner noted.
We remind the co-head of the organizing committee to create BCD party was sentenced to three years in an open-type detention facility for post-election protests on December 19, 2010. Pavel Sevyarynets serves his term in special detention facility No. 7 in the village of Kuplin (Pruzhany district).
