Andrew RETTMAN, EUobserver
Belarus held its presidential elections on 11 October 2015. Tatsiana Karatkevich was the only democratic candidate opposing President Lukashenka.
She came second in the elections, which were noted for their “substantial shortcomings” by the OSCE. The first ever female presidential candidate in Belarus, she is the new face of the Belarusian opposition.
Karatkevich will share the experience of her arduous electoral campaign, as well as political plans.
Under restrictive conditions and hindered by competing political groups,
she visited up to five towns every day.
Together with MEP Auŝtrevičius and journalist Rettman,
Karatkevich will discuss the country’s current political situation.
