Rada of the Belarusian intelligentsia has identified five candidates for the presidency. This Alexander Kozulin, Sergei Kalyakin Nyaklyayeu, Yaroslav Romanchuk and Andrei Sannikov. Recognize this decision, those candidates who were not included in this list?
At a round table in the identification of a single presidential candidate from the democratic forces appeared only Nyaklyayeu and Anatoly Lebedko, who represented Yaroslav Romanchuk. These persons, according to the chairman of the Rada Vladimir Kolos, have agreed to carry out preferential voting. Rada considered all the nominations and selected the "most promising figures, among which you can define a single".
"We hope that will be further consolidation and the process will continue, and will put forward a single candidate. Fact that it defined a fiver — I hope it's galvanize this process, which started to slow down," — said Vladimir Kolos.
The candidate of the BPF Gregory Kastusyou said that refers to the decision with humor.
"I do not want to offend the Council of intellectuals, for there I respect people. But they made the decision for those individuals who stated that they are not contenders for the presidency. Kaljakin is a contender or not? Nekljaev also said that he had not yet made a final decision . They are not contenders for the presidency. Why they made the list? Why these people responsibility to vote and decide on the procedure and other issues? Therefore, this list looks playfully. "
According Kastusiou, go out to a single need, but this possibility is not yet in sight. He believes that the process itself razrulitstsa and there is nothing wrong there, because not everyone will be able to present the initiative groups or to collect signatures. Therefore be able to create one or two candidates.
The presidential candidate of the BCD Vitaly Rymashevski said that the Rada has no political or legal implications, and does not affect the situation in the country:
"The site, which was created in the environment of the Council of the intelligentsia, was immediately set up for a particular candidate or a particular group of people, possibly with common sources of funding. Quite predictable option, although we do not refuse to talk in the future of the negotiations on conducting the campaign. These solutions Mr. Kolasa render it personally one of those subjects or areas in which it might be fruitful political agreement between the partners. "
On Ales Mikhalevich, candidate determined by the Council, will still not be the only and will not even have a partial internal legitimacy as the sole candidate.
Sergei Kalyakin, who made the list of Parliament, confirmed that he does not put forward a candidate. But he believes that the opinion of the Council to "take note". The candidate of the UCP Yaroslav Romanchuk endorsed the decision of the Council:
"I think that ultimately, who will be the only one of these five will be resolved or closer to the collection of signatures, or at the stage of registration. This will be resolved, as the consultations will continue."
It has been suggested, though, the five — Cola "pro-Russian candidate." To this Mr. Romanchuk said:
"Some have a temptation — to present only Milinkevich single European candidate and make an artificial division between the Europeans and the pro-Moscow candidate. Such separation is not. These people are first and foremost politicians, who have a vision of development of Belarus. Promoscow they can be called only when you yourself uchastvuesh in some scenarios, together with the authorities. "
