6 000 signatures for referendum in Mahiliou
Leninski district court of Mahiliou accepted for consideration the lawsuit of Ihar Kavalenka, dweller of Salominka suburb, against Mahiliou city executive committee. The executive committee refused to register the initiative group on holding of local referendum, which became the reason for the lawsuit. The trial was appointed on 16 January.
The local referendum is initiated by the vendors of Krynitsa market, situated in Salominka suburb. The executive committee ruled that a sportive complex must be constructed in the place of the market and the market must be moved to another location. About 150 workers of the market do not agree to this decision. That’s why they have already collected about 6 000 signatures for holding of a local referendum on this question.
