Parliamentary Election in Belarus Could Lead to Constructive Dialog With Eu - Osce Pa

MINSK. Sept 27 (Interfax) - Anne-Marie Lizin, Vice-President of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly and Special Coordinator heading OSCE short-term observers at the Belarusian parliamentary elections hopes that Belarus will have a constructive dialog with Europe after the election.

"The fact Europe hears and listens to what is happening in Belarus could lead to constructive elements [in relationships]," Lizin said at a meeting with Belarusian Central Elections Commission (CEC) chief Lidia Yermoshina.

"This is a particular issue after what happened in Georgia," Lizin said, noting that the OSCE and the European Union are interested in Belarus.

The special coordinator also noted "positive shifts in the electoral process." "The fact that observers could attend the vote counting is a positive factor, which will play a positive role after the election," she said. "I will be glad if observers report only on positive things to us," Lizin added.
