Belarus Votes

On March 16th Belarusians will vote on who they want to lead the country for the next 5 years. Although revolutions and change have touched every corner of Eastern Europe I highly doubt that there will be a coloured revolution in Belarus.

Recent reports show a vigilent clampdown on journalists and any other person who may pose a threat to the "expected" election results. The president, Lukashenka, is running again and all sources point to his victory.

After all anything can happen. Who could have predicted the fall of communism in Romania? Who knows what will happen in Belarus. Eastern Europe is always full of surprises.
