Belarusian opposition leader Svetlana Tichanovskaya has introduced an alternative government team to promote the replacement of ruler Alexander Lukashenko. Two years after the presidential elections in Belarus, which were deemed fraudulent, yesterday in the Lithuanian capital Vilnius announced a “United Transition Cabinet” and appointed the first members.
The body should represent Belarus’ national interests, promote democratic change and restore the rule of law, she said. The group has no state powers and operates from exile. His comrades in arms also include members of the opposition who used to belong to the Belarusian leadership system.
In the August 9, 2020 election, Lukashenko declared himself the winner of the election, sparking unprecedented protests in Belarus. Many see Tichanovskaya as the real winner of the election. She fled to Lithuania after the election. Due to considerable state repression, there are almost no major demonstrations in Belarus.
