Parliamentary elections in Belarus 2024

February 28, 2024
10:00 - 11:30 CEST/CET

Hybrid panel discussion 

Venue: Institute for the Danube Region and Central Europe (IDM), Hahngasse 6, 1090 Vienna

Scheduled for 25 February 2024, the parliamentary elections in Belarus will involve voting for local councils and the House of Representatives, the lower chamber of the Belarusian Parliament. Subsequently, a novel entity, the All-Belarusian People’s Assembly, will be constituted by the newly elected regional and national authorities.  

A few days after the parliamentary elections, we expect Belarusian and international experts to shed light on key aspects of the electoral process. What characterised the election campaign? How does Alexander Lukashenko present himself these days? And how do pro-democracy forces in and outside Belarus deal with the impasse in their country?
