"At present, people are unable to express their distrust of the government in the form of public actions, for example a rally, due to activists’ arrests and due to organizational and ideological pressure from the authorities," he said.

"Belarus has no clearly marked party of power like Russia has, so that people could vent their mistrust by voting against this party’s candidates and by supporting other candidates. Although, all the candidates for parliament actually represent the party of power, it is not written on their faces," the politician said.

He added that "the only way to express mistrust is to boycott the election".
