Memorandum of the Executive Council of the Rada BNR on the presidential elections in Belarus

Memorandum by the Executive Council

of the Rada of the Belarusian Democratic Republic

March, 20 2006

1. The Executive Council of the Rada of the Belarusian Democratic Republic in Exile (BNR Rada) having considered the 19 March 2006 presidential elections in Belarus as well as the preceding and subsequent events, and noting in particular that

  • the nomination of Alexander Lukashenka for presidency for the third term was unconstitutional and no democratic legitimacy had been secured for a revision of that norm;
  • in the course of the presidential campaign the incumbent regime effectively denied the electorate access to information necessary for making a free and informed choice;
  • the “elections” that took place on 19 March 2006 were neither free nor fair, and although the authenticity of the figures released has not been supported by any evidence, the results were forced on society solely by application of massive police violence; hereby concludes and declares that Alexander Lukashenka shall not be regarded as occupying the position of the President of Belarus legitimately, and therefore the office of the head of state in Belarus shall be regarded as usurped.

11 August 2005

The Executive Council of the Rada of the Belarusian Democratic Republic (BNR Rada) has considered the policies and administrative measures of the regime holding power in Belarus toward the Union of Poles in Belarus, and the circumstances of current crisis in diplomatic relations between the said regime and the Republic of Poland, and has issued the following declaration:

The present conflict has developed as a direct result of the regime’s consistent policy that treats any public activities beyond its control as political dissent and hence subject to suppression.

The policy of suppressing independent non-governmental organisations has been recently extended to ethnic minorities, namely the Union of Poles in Belarus. Increasingly desperate for total control in Belarus and hostile to the entire civilised world, the regime of A. Lukashenka has shown little regard for international public opinion while conducting its policy to take over or eradicate any public organisation in the country.
