Enough signatures have been collected for nomination of the candidacy of Sviatlana Malchanava, member of the Belarusian Christian Party, as a candidate to the Orsha town Soviet of Deputies at election constituency #9, and the BCD member Yauhen Anishchanka – at election constituency #3. Another BCD member, Yury Nahorny, has almost finished collecting signatures for nomination of his candidacy on the territory of the town of Baran.

Aliaksandr Kaminski, member of the Belarusian Popular Front who intends to run for the Orsha town Soviet of Deputies at election constituency #8, has finished collecting electors' signatures in support of his candidacy.

Vasil Berasneu, Chairperson of the local organization of the Belarusian Helsinki Committee, has collected three times more signatures than are necessary for the nomination of his candidacy to the Andreyeushchyna village Soviet of Deputies.

The Orsha organization of the United Civil Party decided not to nominate any candidates because of non-inclusion of opposition activists in territorial election commissions.

None of the official and oppositional candidates have used the right to organize pickets for collecting signatures yet.
