The Svetlahorsk lyceum of chemists has nominated its candidates to the Homel oblast and the Homel oblast Soviets of Deputies.
According to information of the local newspaper Ranak, the working collectives of the lyceum and the boarding school unanimously voted for the nomination of Halina Filipovich, Chairperson of the district Soviet of Deputies, as a candidate to the Homel oblast Soviet.

The lyceum also nominated Mikalai Charneika, its director, as a candidate to the Homel district Soviet of Deputies.

According to Ranak, the Svetlahorsk district has 40 election constituencies on elections to the Svetlahorsk Soviet of Deputies. The average number of electors is 1,671. ‘As a result of the last year’s optimization of the administrative division of the village Soviets in the Svetlahorsk district the number of election constituencies decreased by 39,’ writes the edition.
