Ex-Head of National Bank said about it on TV.
Honorary Chairman of the United Civil Party Stanislau Bahdankevich, who was a candidate for district No. 104, announced his support of the boycotting the parliamentary elections on air at channel “Belarus 2”.
The current unsteady stability in Belarus is facilitated by spending what have been created by the earlier generations, by begging for privileges from Russia while threatening the independence and sinking into the debt pit, as he thinks.
“For the years of Alyaksandar Lukashenka’s government gross external debt of the country has come up from zero to $34 billion,” said Stanislau Bahdankevich. The United Civil Party has a program for thorough modernization of the country, but this program is unavailable for public, because violating the Constitution the Party was allowed neither on TV nor on other mass media, stated the politician.
“The authoritarian model of development dictated to the country is not effective, the country is being governed unprofessionally and incompetently,” pointed out Stanislau Bahdankevich. According to him, the voter should know not only Alyaksandar Lukashenka’s supporters but other politicians and their programs too.
“Being insecure about its support the authority creates opportunities for forging,” the politician reckons. “A well known dictator of the past once said: it doesn’t matter who vote, what matters is who’s counting. They didn’t not allow the representative of opposition to the elections commissions,” said the candidate.
“The elections are not free, nor are they honest. In such conditions the United Civil Party started a campaign for honest and free elections. We all are joining boycott,” stated Stanislau Bahdankevich.
