The Central Election Commission of Belarus was invited to take part in observing presidential elections in Ukraine
It was decided that, from the Belarusian side, the unscheduled presidential elections will be observed by the Secretary of the Central Election Commission, Nikolay Lozovik, and CEC Deputy Chairman and Director of the National Centre of Legislation and Legal Research, Vadim Ipatov.
“We’re preparing for this trip,” notes Mr. Lozovik. “Everything depends now on whether the situation in Ukraine will change. We’re ready to get acquainted with the practice of preparation and organisation of the elections under such difficult socio-political conditions in the country. The Central Election Commission in Ukraine is working intensively and the working conditions are very hard. Nevertheless, the elections are being prepared and we’d like their organisation to somehow reduce the degree of political heat.”
The Belarusian observers plan to fly to Ukraine on May 23rd, while the unscheduled presidential elections in Ukraine will take place on May 25th.
