Expert: voter turnout showed Belarus passed political maturity test

The active participation of citizens in Single Voting Day showed that the country passed the test of political maturity – as stated by the analyst at the Belarusian Institute for Strategic Research (BISR), Nikolai Sukhotsky, in his talk with the Belarus 1 TV channel

According to the expert, the voter turnout showed that the elections were held perfectly. 

“We have been talking a lot about electoral sovereignty lately. Belarus has shown that it has passed the test of political maturity, the country is really on the right track, and the deputies must justify the votes because the key is people's requests,” the expert noted. 

Nikolai Sukhotsky also stated that the high turnout during the early voting period shows that this election campaign does not differ in a good way from the previous ones. 

“The society was quite politicised in 2020. Now we cannot talk about politicisation, because it still has a negative context, we are talking about the political participation of citizens in the life of the country, they make choices and do it quite actively. Now, this situation is significant and the figures speak for themselves,” the expert added.
