The Supreme Court of Belarus ruled to liquidate two district branches of the BPF Party in Hrodna. The reason for the liquidation was that the branches had their legal addresses registered on residential premises.
“Mopping up before the elections, comments Siarhei Malchyk, the chair of the city branch of the BPF Party. - The authorities are doing all they can to minimize the effect the BPF Party might legally exert on the election process. Liquidation of the party structures is the first move. However, the party structure that is already there will continue whether or not it has legal registration”, said Mr. Malchyk.
