Belarus sets date of presidential election for 19 December 2010

14.09.2010 10:58

MINSK, 14 September (BelTA) - The date of the presidential election in Belarus has been set for 19 December 2010. This decision was adopted at the 5th, extraordinary, session of the House of Representatives of the National Assembly of Belarus on 14 September.

All present 108 MPs unanimously voted for this date.

In accordance with the Constitution of Belarus and the Electoral Code, the House of Representatives appoints the presidential elections not later than five months prior to the expiration of the term of office of the President of Belarus. They are held no later than two months before the expiration of the term of office of the President. Thus, under the legislation, the election of the President of Belarus should take place no later than 6 February 2011.

When determining the date of the presidential election, the permanent commission for state construction, local governance and regulations was trying to ensure the maximum participation of citizens in the electoral campaign and to set most convenient time for the voters. The election held late in the year will enable the government to start working on reaching the five-year social and economic goals right from early 2011. Besides, the beginning of the year is rich in various holidays, and that is why this period is considered to be ill-timed for holding the elections.
