People talk during an anti-election campaign rally in Minsk on September 22, 2012. Belarus strongman Alexander Lukashenko is set to return his forces to power on September 23 in a parliamentary ballot boycotted by the opposition and condemned by Western powers as a stage-managed farce. Nearly two years after waging an ugly crackdown on demonstrators who dared question the scale of his election to a fourth term, the former collective farm boss faces hardly a challenge from his scattered and weakened political foes.
