Klaskouski: Nyaklyayeu’s resignation is major hit for opposition’s image


Uladzimir Nyaklyayeu protested against the opposition’s cynicism, the political analyst thinks.

Uladzimir Nyaklyayeu’s resignation from the Tell the Truth campaign will not affect the presidential election, political analyst Alyaksandr Klaskouski thinks. The opposition started ‘failing’ the election campaign much earlier, he told Euroradio. All political structures except for the UCP have proposed secondary candidates.

Klaskouski: "I think it is a moral hit for the opposition. As a poet and public figure, Nyaklyayeu could not put up with the evident cynicism of the election campaign.”

The opposition has no chance or strength to win the election but it does not want to admit it and starts inventing ideas about possible Russian aggression, Klaskouski said. “They say Russia may organize such a Square that Lukashenka would flee like Yanukovich and Putin will be putting things in order here,” the analyst noted.

Nyaklyayeu’s conscience has reacted to it, Klaskuoski said. This step is a chance for the opposition leader to understand that the conceptual, personal and total crisis has reached its peak in the opposition, the expert hopes.
