MOSCOW (Reuters) - The Belarusian central election committee said on Wednesday veteran leader Alexander Lukashenko would be inaugurated as president for a new term within the next two months, but that no date had yet been set, the TASS news agency reported.
Lukashenko is facing a groundswell of public anger over allegations of election rigging at a disputed Aug. 9 presidential vote. His opponents want him out and for a new election to be held.
