UNIVISIÓN reports that USA has stated that recent elections in Belarus “were not democratic”.

The US speaker Robert Wood said that the decision was taken after the oposition had not obtained one seat. 263 candidates, among others the 70 who belonged to the oposition, took part in the elections for the lower chamber.

More than 5 million voters went to the polls on Sunday, that is the 75.3% of the people able to vote. Belarus has a total population of 10 million people.

But the oposition had announced that these elections weren’t democratic and stated that they were “unequal and illegitimate”, according to the leader of the United Citizen Party, Anatoli Lebedko, to Moscow’s Echos Radio.

And then there are people who don’t understand why Lukashenko is called a dictator…

Oh, by the way, he has a good relationship with Chávez
