The workers of the Integral enterprise are made to come to work with their passports and sign in support for the candidacy of the director general, Mr. Kazlou.

Siarhei Karpovich, a member of the initiative group of Viktar Ivashkevich, was informed about it by five or six electors while collecting signatures in Kastrychnitskya electoral district #97. ‘The people are also told that they have no right to sign for other pretenders,’ Karpovich said.

Aliaksei Kazlou has already got his initiative group registered and now is going to become a candidate to the Chamber of Representatives at electoral district #97 by collection of citizens’ signatures.
