EU Leaders Do Not Recognize Belarus Election Results
The EU countries do not recognize the results of the Belarusian presidential elections.
The elections were neither free nor fair, and the EU will soon sanction a “substantial” number of Belarusians for electoral fraud and violence against protesters, EU President Charles Michel said after a digital EU summit on the situation in the country…
President Lukashenko has been re-elected with 80 percent of the vote, according to the Electoral Commission in Belarus, but the result has been messed up according to many.
“We condemn the violence and demand an independent investigation into it,” said Michel. Impunity is not accepted according to him. Leaders also call for an “inclusive national dialogue in Belarus.”
All countries should support such a process,” Michel said in reference to Russia, speaking the situation is “primarily a national crisis”.
According to the EU, it is about the right of Belarusians to choose their own leader and determine their own future.
