Under Decree #157 adapted by Pinsk town executive committee, candidates will not be allowed to hold pickets for collecting signatures of voters within 100 meters of governmental buildings, industrial enterprises, educational, medical, religious and sports buildings, thus forcing the initiative groups out of the town center.
The decision is deemed as a restriction of canvassing opportunities in most of the town’s central streets, developing the recent tendency of Brest region executive authorities – the larger is the town, the more severe are the restrictions.
