According to official results, President Alyaksandr Lukashenka won 83 percent of the votes in the election. Milinkevich, who was the main opposition candidate, won 6 percent.
Prosecutors earlier today said Milinkevich could face up to 15 days in prison for public-order violations in connection with the protests he led against Lukashenka's reelection.
The Belarusian opposition, backed by Western governments and observers, denounced the election as fraudulent.
