State Department: Elections in Belarus were peaceful, but undemocratic


"The United States welcomes the peaceful conduct of 11 October presidential elections in Belarus. Nevertheless, we are disappointed that the elections did not meet the international obligations and obligations of Belarus on free and fair elections ", - stated in the statement of the department.

After reviewing the reports of international observers (OSCE / ODIHR), the State Department declared "serious problems with the counting of votes and the tabulation of the election results." The ministry criticized the composition of election commissions and noted the “lack of fundamental reforms in the imperfect legal base of Belarus that regulates elections”.

"We welcome the participation of opposition political parties and independent media in the electoral process, but the failure of international and local observers to monitor the vote count and the almost complete absence of (representatives of) the opposition parties or independent members in election commissions are incompatible with democratic processes and norms" - said in a statement.

In addition, the State Department urged the country's leaders to "respect points US and Belarus joint statement of December 2010 year in which Minsk recognizes that increased respect for democracy and human rights in Belarus remains central to improving bilateral relations, and is essential for the progress of the country and its citizens ".

Recall that on Sunday Alexander Lukashenko was re-elected as president of Belarus. 83,5% of voters voted for him.

        Democracy itself has so much that it spills over the edges to other countries.

        If we abstract from the American methods of spreading democracy and objectively look at the electoral system in the United States, it turns out that this political system can hardly be called "democracy". There is no direct expression of the will of the people: some, it is not entirely clear on what principle the appointed "electors", in the amount of several hundred people, elect the head of state. The bulk of American citizens have no direct influence on these actions. Where is "democracy" here? They themselves still have to learn and learn, and not tell others.

        Yes, who would doubt such a conclusion.

        For the prospect of holding "truly democratic elections according to their standards", the Americans PROMOTED THE NOBEL PRIZE FOR LITERATURE BELARUSK ALEKSIEVICH. OBVIOUSLY PREPARED FROM HER MINSK "GAVEL"! So do not be surprised at the promotion of her name in the global information space ...
        But the West is unlikely to succeed. The son lives in Minsk. I often go there. In conversations, they scold dad with all his throat ... but when it comes to the choice - everyone goes to vote for his candidacy. Scold something scold, but respect and completely trust! The inhabitants of Belarus need a peaceful and calm country where the rights of all are more or less protected ... and not the "chosen ones" ... without Maidans and pederast parades. The Belarusians do not need great shocks ... like their neighbors ... and therefore ... they actively participate in such non-democratic elections!

        The US is the country with the most opaque electoral system, at least among the countries of the "democratic choice". There is no direct vote for a candidate; the so-called electors, who are essentially appointed, vote for the president. As a result, we have an appointed president. The impudence with which they comment on the degree of democracy in other countries is surprising, although they themselves have perverted this definition to the point that in 3/4 of the countries democracy has become a dirty word. I am sure that in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, children are frightened by "democrats". The cynicism of Americans in terms is evident in the names they themselves give to weapons. "Peacemaker" is both a bomber (B36) and an intercontinental missile (MX), what the State Department calls democracy is the same in fact that it is deadly.

      The border service of Belarus detained about 200 citizens of Ukraine while trying to illegally cross the border, reports Interfax with reference to the TV channel Belarus 1.
      Referring to the information of border guards, the TV channel reported that some of the detainees had camouflage clothes, batons, bats and traumatic weapons. At the same time, some of the detained citizens of Ukraine are on the international wanted list, Belarus 1 noted.
      The report also emphasized that the detainees could not explain the purpose of the visit to Belarus and provided false information about the persons who invited them.
      A message about an attempt to illegally enter the territory of Belarus was received on the eve of the presidential election, which is scheduled for October 11 in the country.
      In August this year, President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko announced the need to strengthen the state border with Ukraine. He explained his decision by the danger of people with weapons entering the country.

    at the same time, disappointment with the mismatch of the electoral process with international democratic standards
    And this:
    In addition, the State Department urged the country's leaders to "respect points US and Belarus joint statement of December 2010 year in which Minsk recognizes that increased respect for democracy and human rights in Belarus remains central to improving bilateral relations, and is essential for the progress of the country and its citizens ".
    a joint statement is that a treaty or a pact, and what obligations does Belarus impose, besides its expression of a statement of some facts and some concern about them, where is the obligation to it is not clear to whom? The main thing in this story is this:
    on Sunday, Alexander Lukashenko was re-elected as president of Belarus. 83,5% of voters voted for him.
    they get stuck that not a single American and European presidents, as well as prime ministers, were ever elected with such support from their peoples.

    You will pay attention to the honor before the recognition * abroad *, if it is recognized there is complete democracy. The USA does not allow any observers to come to it, nevertheless, Americans are invited everywhere as witnesses of democracy, as if there are not enough American * Jehovah's Witnesses *. Now professional * witnesses of democracy * have appeared.

    Jankermans and their henchmen should clearly understand:
    1. Russia, Belarus and Ukraine do not care deeply about their perverted opinion.
    2. We absolutely do not care what criminals and aggressors in the person of the SSH and their vassals think of us.

    This point of view is simply necessary to hammer into their brainless heads.

    “The United States welcomes the peaceful conduct of the October 11 presidential election in Belarus. Nevertheless, we are disappointed that the elections did not meet the international obligations and the obligations of Belarus on free and fair elections ”

    How. It turns out that the Belarusians owe something to America. Syabry, why are you so optional? Before lowering the ballot paper into the ballot box, you had to stand up at the "I serve" stand, press your right hand to your heart, as modern administrative units do with pathos, and loudly croak: "Amerka, Amerka uber alles ..." ... And you disappointed the State Department and personally "ITS BLACKNESS", then you are the wrong Belarusians. Probably there are already plans on how to correct you and lead you to a common DENIOR. Wait syabry. bully

    After reviewing the reports of international observers (OSCE / ODIHR), the State Department announced “serious problems with the counting of votes and the tabulation of the election results” - Khlusnya ... I declare responsibly, personally acted as an observer from the Belarusian Social and Sports Society. During the day, two international observers visited the polling station, journalists came twice, all day, in addition to observers from public organizations, there were opposition observers at the polling station. There were minor flaws, of course, but the vote count was carried out openly and publicly, so all statements from the states and their sixes are nonsense.
    And some statistics, out of 1500 voters, 1372 voted. Of these, 1044 were for Old Man, 63 against all, 25 spoiled ballots, for the remaining 3 candidates 240 votes ...% if you want, you can count yourself, there were a lot of young people, people went with families with children . For homely mobility groups organized elections at home

    “We welcome the participation of opposition political parties and independent media in the election process, but the inability of international and local observers to monitor the vote count and the almost complete absence of (representatives) of opposition parties or independent members in election commissions are incompatible with democratic processes and norms,” the message says.

    In addition, the State Department urged the country's leaders to "respect points US and Belarus joint statement of December 2010 year in which Minsk recognizes that increased respect for democracy and human rights in Belarus remains central to improving bilateral relations, and is essential for the progress of the country and its citizens ".

    The most interesting.
    What is increased respect?
    Can be respected. And you can not respect.
    You can comply, but you can not comply.
    But increased respect - how is it?
    When is someone else's opinion more important than their own?

    Americans can walk in the forest! THEY DO NOT HAVE ANY DIRECT SELECTIVE SYSTEM AT ALL. Those. the president is not elected by citizens, but by a limited number of electors. Much more democratic No.



    I'm lying around! The teachers were found! Elections only for babos! whoever gives the most money from the three clans will lead the country! and they still try to teach us! for decades the clans themselves have not changed at all! Negro was taken in order to show the type of "democracy with us"! After him, only blue or pink should take the place of the president of mattresses lol then maybe we will approve the election of the American president!

    Belarusians live richly and peacefully. Do not pay attention to the war between the United States and the West. The Russian Federation has already fed up with Western democracy, is looking for and finding ways for its prosperity. Good luck to you. Remember "friendship" with the United States and the Western world leads to the Ukrainian scenario.

    They were not expected to hear anything else from the State Duma, they probably need to develop coefficients of democratization in different countries, so that it is clear how democratic and where, and where not very, well, for example, the United States - 1,0 (and even +0,1 just case), Ukraine - 0,89 (the unit is not yet possible, the Russians are following ....), Russia - 0,2 (20% left to the fifth column), etc. Send out official notifications of the degree of democracy to everyone and calm down with their moronic comments. After all, you can already predict in advance what they will write.

    "State Department: elections in Belarus were peaceful, but undemocratic"

    Let them look at themselves. In the United States, the democracy they praise does not smell at all in the elections. There does NOT DEPEND ON ANY VOTER at all. Indirect elections - this is still a lure.

    Good afternoon comrades! Just registered. I accidentally went to this site - I liked it. Almost without swearing and the transition to personality. A lot of information and interesting pictures. This is as an introduction to the hut! )))
    But here’s what worries us - tough categoricalness in judgments. Anyone who is not with the majority is a bastard!
    For example, I didn’t vote for Old Man. Am I an enemy? (I do not belong to the opposition)

      No, not an enemy, just expressed his position. That's why they are elections. And I’m not going to minus this for you.
      And about "who is not with the majority is a bastard" - the interpretation is wrong. Personal opinion does not necessarily coincide with the majority and it is not always wrong!

    plus sign to you fellow countryman, for the acquaintance so to speak. I will answer the question: no, not an enemy ... we in Belarus seem to have a "very severe dictatorship", "violation of human rights" and so on blah blah blah, in the opinion of the State Department, natural ... but in practice it turns out that people live freer than in Europe, etc., and no one forbids expressing their opinions, again, in the forms permitted by law
