Belarusian opposition politician, Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya, said, on Monday, she was ready to lead Belarus.

Tsikhanouskaya, therefore, called for the creation of a legal framework to ensure a new fair election could be held.

Speaking in a video address from Lithuania, she also urged security and law enforcement officers to switch sides from President Alexander Lukashenko’s government.


She said their (security and law enforcement officers) past behaviour would be forgiven if they did so now.

Belarusians chanting “Step down!” filled the centre of the capital Minsk on Sunday in the biggest protest so far against what they said was the fraudulent re-election a week ago of long-time president Lukashenko.
