Parliamentary elections 2012

The last parliamentary elections were held in Belarus on September 23rd 2012. The attitude and forms and methods of participating (or not participating) in these elections were widely discussed among the opposition.

All opposition forces altogether look ed at these elections with skepticism and were sure that they will be neither democratic nor transparent. In this context, the most radical movements came forward with the proposal to boycott the election campaign.

But the majority of opposition movements, including “Tell the Truth!” and “For Freedom Movement”, were considering an option that would allow them to use legal procedures for communicating with the electorate, presenting their programs and enlarging their electoral potential.
