Of the registered candidates for president has immunity only Alexander Lukashenko — the acting president of the Republic of Belarus in accordance with the Constitution.
On the issue of Radio Liberty, owned by a candidate for president immunity (the ban on their personal search, a search of their residential and office space, the inability of criminal or civil liability except by Attorney General, which is guaranteed by the deputy of the supreme legislative body) — Secretary of the Central Election Commission Nikolai Lozovik said:
Lazavik: "No immunity presidential candidate law does not. They are responsible before the law as well as ordinary citizens. Only thing they can not during the election campaign to dismiss from work, and during the campaign, they can take a vacation."
