According to RFE/RL
The Ministry of Justice again refused to register the Party of Freedom and Progress. The head of the party, deputy of the Chamber of Representatives Uladzimir Navasiad said that last time the ministry motivated its decision by “violation of the order of the party establishment”. He emphasized that this time that party submitted additional documentation to the ministry. This time the formal reason was invalidity of signatures. According to Navasiad, the conclusion of the ministry states that all 1 000 signatures were checked by the institute of criminology and legal expertise.
