The Supreme Court of Belarus refused to initiate proceedings on the complaint of Tikhanovskaya about the election results

The Supreme Court of Belarus rejected Svetlana Tikhanovskaya’s complaint about the results of the presidential elections.

“The determination is not subject to appeal and protest on appeal,” the court said in a statement. At the same time, Tikhanovskaya’s lawyers said they would appeal this decision.

In her complaint, Tikhanovskaya demanded that the election results be declared invalid and that a criminal case be initiated due to fraud. The court also rejected similar complaints from candidates Anna Kanopatskaya and Andrei Dmitriev.

Earlier, complaints about the results of the presidential elections were rejected by the CEC. In addition to Tikhanovskaya, they were submitted by the other losing candidates – Andrei Dmitriev, Anna Kanopatskaya and Sergei Cherechen. 

According to the official data of the Central Election Commission, Alexander Lukashenko won more than 80% of the votes, Svetlana Tikhanovskaya – about 10%.
