The electoral commission of Urucha district #109 abolished registration of the candidate, vice-chair of BPF – Ales Mikhalevich.

The reason for the abolishing was a leaflet without data line which contained information about Ales Mikhalevich and was distributed in the district. The falsification of the leaflet is obvious because the person who was developing it did not have even Belarusian alphabet on the computer.

It should be stressed that the candidate learned about the leaflets yesterday and appealed to the police, Prosecutor and electoral commission at once. He announced that he has no connection to the leaflet and demanded to find out who attempted to disrupt his electoral campaign. But nevertheless, today the commission resumed to refuse him in the right to participate in the election onwards.

Ales Mikhalevich is going to contest the decision of the electoral commission in the CEC.
