Chairman of the Russian Central Elections Commission Vladimir has said the parliamentary elections in Belarus were held in compliance with national legislation.
"The elections demonstrated the free expression of the public's will. We did not discover violations of the election code in the process of our observation. I believe that Belarus will form its parliament based on the election results," he told the press in Minsk on Sunday.
Churov said that as an international observer he attended the opening of a polling station in Minsk. "We drove to Smorgon in Grodno region and visited a polling station there. The people voted actively in the elections. The entire procedure complied with the law," he said. "Everything had been done for the convenience of voters," he said.
Churov said he was aware of an incident at a polling station involving OSCE observers. "Overturned ballot-boxes, attempts to find some fabrications - that's insane," he said commenting on the willingness of certain observers to discover some falsifications in the process of the elections. "Observers were present wherever we went," he said.
