In Russia in 1993 the President succeeded in consolidating his authority vis-à-vis the parliament by violent means. 28 In 1999 in Belarus the opposition faced two serious dilemmas. First, the unofficial presidential elections of May 1999 ended in controversy and dispute, particularly regarding the methods of voting and the number of votes obtained, and the withdrawal from the race of Pazniak at a late stage.

Because the current hybrid system of economic management – part market and part plan – is the result of a political choice, we cannot say that the transition has failed. More accurately, it has not been tried. It is argued that although the current market–administrative mix has failed to deliver sustained significant growth, that reflects more the internal contradictions in the current system than any fundamental failure of the market model.
