Election Proposal – But No Major Changes

The  Charter ´97 News Center reports that work in cooperation between the Central Election Commission of Belarus and OSCE has been done, to try and change the electoral laws in the country.

However, the chairwoman of the CEC claims that there will be no great changes. “Only some electorial technologies and organizational issues will be changed,” says chairwoman Lydzia Yarmoshyna.

The proposal which is the outcome of the talks betwen the CEC and the OSCE is to contain some suggestions for making the campaigning easier for all candidates, such as permission to fund any candidate and easier access to mass events.

However, Yarmoshyna also says that the proposal is to be sent to the ministries of Belarus and no actual draft of a new law will be started until there is an order to do so.
