MINSK (Reuters) - Belarusian leader Alexander Lukashenko said on Monday there would be no new presidential election despite calls from the opposition and nationwide anti-government protests, the Belta news agency reported.
“You should never expect me to do something under pressure,” he was quoted as saying. “They (new elections) won’t happen.”
