CEC chairperson: I would be shocked if Luakshenka refused to run for president

Сentral Election Commission chairwoman Lidziya Yarmoshyna

If Alyaksandr Lukashenka decided to refuse from running for President, it would be a great shock to Lidziya Yarmoshyna. However, it could only shock her as an ordinary voter since she will no longer be the CEC chairperson at that time, Lidziya Yarmoshyna told Euroradio.

Lidziya Yarmoshyna: “You know, I will no longer be the CEC chairperson in 2025 (after another presidential election). I am sure of it. This situation would not embarrass me at work. But would be a shock to me as an ordinary voter. It 9Lukashenka’s refusal to run for President. – Euroradio) will be important to me as a voter but it will not matter to me as the CEC chairperson, I believe.”

Nursultan Nazarbayev’s retirement from the position of the President of Kazakhstan was also a shock to her, Yarmoshyna noted. However, she calmed down when she learned that he was not retiring for good, Lidziya Yarmoshyna said.
