On September 25th Yuras Zhydovich, voter in Brest –Centralnaya district, called on the number 42-65-58, indicated in the campaign leaflet of candidate Larysa Bahdanovich. Bahdanovich is head physician of the regional center for rehabilitation for children with psycho-neurotic diseases. The phone was answered by secretary of the medical center. On the question about meetings of the candidate with voters she answered that no more meetings were planned. The secretary was so aware of the campaign as if she works not in the medical institution but in the candidate’s headquarters.

Evidently, Larysa Bahdanovich uses not only her work phones, but also her personnel, her subordinates in order to achieve her political goals. This is prohibited by the law.


An appropriate complaint was filed to the district election commission.
