Belarusian Christian Democracy
Published 14th August, 2012
The Belarusian Christian Democracy or BCD was originally founded in 1917 but ceased to exist in 1940 when many of its leaders were killed. In 2005 the name was revived by a small group of young Christians. It describes itself as centre-right and believes in Christian democracy. Unlike its predecessor it embraces both Orthodox and Protestant Christianity.
The party put up a presidential candidate, Vital Rymasheuski, in the 2010 presidential election and received 1.09% of the vote.
The Belarusian Christian Democracy is a member of the European Christian Political Movement (ECPM).
