Hrodna: an official candidate withdraws from the elections
One of the candidates registered at Hrodna-Zaniomanskaya constituency #49, Siarhei Kamianetski, withdrew from the elections. The constituency electoral commission confirmed this fact to the observers, but offered no explanations. The only thing they were told was that they could read about it all the next day, in the local state press.
It seems quite obvious that Kamianetski removed his candidacy after registration of another official candidate, the head of Hrodna city executive committee Alexander Antonenka, at the same constituency. Now Antonenka formally has three rivals – representatives of the united democratic forces Siarhei Kuzmianok, Vadzim Saranchukou and Alexander Vasiljieu.
