Belarusian Christian Democracy to boycott the election
Members of the organizing committee for creation of the Belarusian Christian Democracy (BCD) will withdraw their candidates from the pre-election campaign by 23 September.
At the consultations of the BCD organizing committee a decision has been taken to withdraw candidates in case four main conditions won’t be fulfilled (admission of Christian Democratic to election commissions, complete cessation of repressions, early voting cancel, free access to mass media).
As we have informed, 5 candidates of the BCD have been registered. They are Dzianis Sadouski (constituency #103, Masiukoushchyna, Minsk), Vital Rymasheuski (constituency #105, Staravilenskaya, Minsk), Viktar Yanchurevich (#Kalinouskaya, Minsk), Tatsiana Seviarynets (Vitsebsk, Horki #17), and Kastus Zhukouski (Buda-Kashaliova #38, Homel region). Three more members of the organizing committee for creation of the BCD, Tatsiana Shambalava, Dzmitry Kukhlei and Aliaksei Aleksandrovich, haven’t been registered as candidates for deputies, and have filed appealed to the CEC.
‘We shall carry out an active campaign in districts and explain people: do not go to vote, you will be deceived, but take part in our campaigns, look at our BCD leaders in your districts’, the co-chairman of the organizing committee for creation of the BCD Pavel Seviarynets said.
