According to the information that was given to the BelaPAN information agency by the deputy chair of the United Civil Party Ihar Shynkaryk, the leader of the United Civil Party Anatol Liabedzka intended to run for a deputy seat. However, the territorial election commission didn’t accept the documents of his initiative group for registration. The matter is that the commission worked on 5, 8 and 9 November, when the politician was abroad. Mr Shynkaryk tried to register the lists of the initiative group’s members, but the commission members stated that the presence of the candidate was necessary during the procedure of the registration. As a result it was decided that Artsiom Liabedzka, a son to Anatol Liabedzka, will try to become a deputy instead.

The UCP leader still has one possibility to take part in the election – to get nominated as a candidate by his party. Most probably, he will run in the election circuit where the leader of the Party of Communists of Belarus Siarhei Kaliakin is already registered as a candidate. The deputy chair of the Belarusian People’s Front Viktar Ivashkevich intends to register there as a candidate as well.
