Turnout at elections in Belarus more than 75%

More than 75% of citizens have cast their votes at the presidential elections in Belarus, an official with the Central Election Commission said Sunday.

There are 10 candidates who are running for presidency including the current President Alexander Lukashenko. The Central Election Commission accredited more than 1,000 international monitors to supervise the elections.

The monitors have stated no serious violations during the elections.

Some of the oppositional candidates urged their supporters to gather at the Oktyabrskaya square in Minsk and to wait for the preliminary results of the elections.

If it turns out that the results are faked they will demand the authorities to hold new elections.

According to local reporters there are several cars and busses of Special Police Forces in the streets near the square.
