    Belarus Leader Claims Sweeping Victory in Presidential Election

    (Bloomberg) -- Alexander Lukashenko claimed a sweeping victory in presidential elections in Belarus to win a sixth term after a contest that saw the biggest opposition protests of his 26-year rule.Lukashenko received 79.7% of the vote, with 6.8% going to opposition candidate Svetlana Tikhanovskaya, state-run Belarus 1 TV reported Sunday citing an official exit poll published minutes after voting ended.For the opposition, “the main thing is to accept defeat,” Central Election Commission Chairwoman Lidia Yermoshina said of the preliminary results on state TV. The commission is due to publish official results on Monday.Lukashenko, 65, a former Soviet collective farm boss, faced unprecedented protests against his rule after opposition groups united behind Tikhanovskaya, a 37-year-old former teacher, when other contenders were either jailed or kept off the ballot. The stay-at-home mother, who only ran after her husband Sergei, a political blogger, was detained and barred from the race, drew huge crowds at rallies nationwide.The outcome, which compares to 83% won by Lukashenko in 2015 elections, may spark further demonstrations amid complaints from opposition activists that high levels of early voting recorded ahead of polling day was an indicator of ballot fraud. The European Platform for Democratic Elections reported that observers had been restricted and detained during early voting.Three other candidates were also on the ballot in the nation of 9.4 million, sandwiched between Russia and the NATO states ofPoland, Lithuania and Latvia.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
