Zinaida Bandarenka was rejected registration of the initiative group at Smarhon district # 61. One the group members took threats of the officials seriously. He was told he would have problems at work and would not receive an apartment. That’s why he signed a statement that he was tricked into the initiative group. Two other initiative group members were forced to sign a statement that they agreed to collect signatures not for Zinaida Bandarenka, but for a person with similar last name.
At the same time the initiative group of the pro-Lukashenka candidate uses the administrative power to collect signatures.
