Global News published this video item, entitled “Belarus opposition leader says new elections must be held before new constitution” – below is their description.
Belarusian opposition politician Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya said on Tuesday that new elections must be held before a new constitution is written in Belarus, and not after. When asked for her reaction about Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko’s comments that new elections could take place after the constitution is amended, Tsikhanouskaya said the opposite should happen. Tsikhanouskaya also called on the international community to pray for Belarus and to keep their attention focused on the situation in the country at a news conference alongside Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg in Vilnius. Also, keeping Belarus opposition politician Maria Kolesnikova in jail would lead to even more angry people protesting on the streets in Belarus, Tsikhanouskaya said on Tuesday. Belarus has seen a tense political stalemate since a disputed presidential election on Aug. 9, with protesters flooding the streets and security forces responding with mass arrests and, according to some of those detained, beatings and torture.
