Chairperson of Brest Regional Executive Committee confesses rigging previous presidential election

During his press conference for representatives of regional mass media the Chairperson of the Brest Regional Executive Committee Kanstantsin Sumar on 30 September suddenly remembered about the previous election campaign in Belarus and made a sensational statement.

Answering to the question about the measures of authorities during the campaign of the election of the President of RB which started in Belarus, Mr. Sumar stated that he insisted that the campaign would go maximally democratically, and ruling of the Brest City Executive Committee concerning the picketing places was amended for this purpose.

However, after that the official suddenly recollected about the presidential election 2006 and said that there were so many people who voted for Aliaksandr Lukashenka in the Brest region ‘that we had to lower the number of votes in his favor by 16,000’.

Actually, the Chairperson of the Brest REC confessed that the results of the presidential election 2006 were fabricated in the Brest region. Before this, such statements were made only by Aliaksandr Lukashenka.
