Vasil Huryanau, CEO of Barysaukhlebpram state factory and candidate in Barysau rural district # 63, had to postpone or cancel his meetings with voters many times. The meetings which he managed to hold could hardly be called crowded.


In particular, only ten voters came to the meeting in Pechy, held in the Officer’s House conference room with over 200 seats. Five of them were people from the candidate’s team, including General Bobrykau, who commands the Joint Education Center. 


 No doubt, the problem is that Huryanau is running in the uncontested election, while UDF representative Siarhei Salash was denied registration.
