Shushkevich: 2015 presidential election scenario already projected

There is no sense in nominating a single opposition contender for the 2015 presidential election, Stanislau Shushkevich, the first leader of independent Belarus, told Radio Racyja.

No matter how many candidates will be running – the presidential election will be held under a prefabricated scenario, the politician stresses.

‘It’s too early to speak about a single contender. Judging by the current events I think that as before, there will be no [fair] elections. Nominating a single candidate is like junking. The Central Election Committee, this disgusting monster, doesn’t hold us out to hope that we may have [fair] elections. There will be no elections. All want to change the regime, but some people are eager gain from it. They can talk, find grounds and write about it,’ Mr Shushkevich said.

Perhaps, Stanislau Shushkevich is the only ex-leader of a European country who has to earn his living after his retirement: Lukashenka’s regime deprived him of pension payments.
