Belarus will hold elections to the lower house of its National Assembly on Sunday.

The parliamentary elections will be held in line with the plurality voting system, with 110 deputies to be elected at 110 single-member constituencies.

Some 20 percent of voters have already cast their ballots in the four days of early voting, the Belarusian Central Election Commission said.

At the previous parliamentary elections in 2008, voter turnout was 76.7 percent. All 110 deputies were elected in the first round.
