The opposition leader Svetlana Tikhanovskaya, according to the election body, garnered 10 percent of the votes, however, she dismissed the result publicly before departing to neighboring Lithuania a day after the exercise.

KDRTV notes that no independent observers we present during the elections.

The opposition supporters alleged mass rigging during the elections and have vowed to stand still until the end.

According to pro-opposition media, 100, 000 people took were involved in the protests, however, State television estimated the crowd at 20, 000.

KDRTV understands that President Lukashenko has been on receiving end from both local and international bodies who want him to stand down.

Since the commencement of protests in the country, four people have been killed and those detained by police have reported that they are being tortured
