Alexander Lukashenko is expected to claim victory according to the latest exit polls.

He has consolidated immense power over his 26 years in office, but in recent weeks has incurred anger over vote rigging which is likely to trigger a backlash.

The opposition candidate for president was forced into hiding the night before challenging the president in the country’s most unpredictable election in a generation.

Authorities detained the campaign manager of main opposition candidate, who became a candidate after her husband was jailed.

Veronika Tsepkalo, who worked closely with the opposition candidate, also fled for Moscow.

Ms Tikhanovskaya reportedly left her apartment after police detained two senior staffers and seven other campaign members in what they called an attempt to scare the opposition before the vote.

She then re-emerged at a polling station on Sunday afternoon alongside an entourage of campaign staff and journalists who were there for her safety.
