Kalyakin: Merger of Communist Parties Is Belarusian Secret Services’ Invention 17:11, 08/06/2006
The leader of the Party of Communists of Belarus Syarhei Kalyakin called the attempt to merge the two acting Communist parties, the Party of Communists of Belarus, and the Belarusian Communist Party, “another scheme of Belarusian secret services”.
“It is another idea of Belarusian secret services, sanctioned by the authorities, to attack one of the strong pillars of the democratic movement, the party of Communists of Belarus, nothing else,” the leader of the party said.
As we have informed, on June 2, 2006 an initiative group of the two parties’ veterans called upon the members of the two parties to hold joint assemblies and conferences and to nominate delegates for a assembly to merger the parties. The Communists are offered to be united at the platform of the pro-presidential Belarusian Communist Party. The leadership of the pro-presidential Communist party has supported that proposal. The assembly is scheduled for July 15.
