Opposition and former Belarusian presidential candidate Andrei Dimitriev announced on Tuesday that he would challenge President Alexander Lukashenko’s victory in the August 9 elections to the Supreme Court.
Dimitriev, who reported that he had decided to appeal the election results after the Central Election Commission (KEK) had rejected all complaints filed against the election results, has called for the presidential elections to be repeated after weeks of protests.
Opponents Svetlana Tijanovskaya, who is currently in Lithuania, and Anna Kanopatskaya joined the complaints about electoral fraud and against the recognition of Lukashenko’s victory.
“Now we are going to the Supreme Court to declare the invalidity of the president invalid. We have the right to appeal to the court after the KEK has been rejected,” said Dimitriev, according to the Sputnik news agency.
