One hundred fifty-two observers have already started monitoring the election campaign in Belarus, said Central Election Commission's (CEC) Chair Lidiya Yermoshina.
"Four of these people are from the Central Elections Commission representing political parties and the Belarusian Helsinki Committee, another 30 are international observers from the CIS, and over 100 people are accredited at district elections commissions," Yermoshina said.
Long-term observers from the OSCE ODIHR (Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe/Office of Democratic Institutions and Human Rights) will arrive in Belarus in the middle of August, most observers will work as part of a short-term mission.
The CIS Parliamentary Assembly is also planning to send a long-term mission, said the CEC head.
