The meeting of the Council of the Belarusian intelligentsia in the round table with the candidates for the president of a democratic society, which started tonight, is still ongoing.
The participants in the meeting have already made the leader of the civil campaign "Tell the Truth" Nyaklyayeu and chairman of the United Civil Party Anatoly Lebedko. Both of them appreciated the attempts to mediate Parliament in defining a single candidate.
Nyaklyayeu said he personally tried to negotiate separately with each candidate for the presidency, but it did not work out. Anatoly Lebedko said that the UDF were trying to determine a single candidate through primaries. But since this idea has not found the necessary support, the UCP is ready to support any other procedure for identifying a single candidate.
After the presentations, members of the Council started discussions. They want to decide what to do further. Earlier, the Parliament warned that todaySchnee meeting could be the last — or will be assigned to the final date for determining a single candidate, or part of Parliament with the powers of a mediator in this process.
