Alexander Lukashenko to remain president of Belarus on January 31st, 2021?

Question

Belarus will have a presidential election on August 09, 2020. Historically, elections in Belarus have been "neither free nor fair". However, recently opposition to Lukashenko has become more vocal.

This question asks, Alexander Lukashenko to remain president of Belarus on January 31st, 2021?

This question will be resolved negatively if there is credible media reporting that Lukashenko has ceased to hold the office of president (for example due to resignation, death, or fleeing the country). In the case where Lukashenko claims to be president in addition to at least one other person, question will resolve positively only if Lukashenko remains in Belarus and continues to hold the "means of power" (broadly, controls the military and police).
