OSCE welcomes positive changes in Belarusian legislation
The OSCE points out to the positive changes in the Belarusian legislation, BelTA reports.
"The adoption of the new law on mass media in Belarus, which makes allowance for the recommendations of the European community, was a very good move," Uta Zapf, head of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly working group, noted at a press conference in Minsk.
According to her, it is very important that Belarus has started to discuss with the OSCE/ODIHR the election legislation and the ways of bringing it in line with European standards. "We cannot say that the changes were considerable but the whole point is that they have begun. The willingness of Belarus to make such changes deserves respect," Uta Zapf noted.
