Baranavichy town executive committee amended its decision #379 of 12 February 2010 on canvassing locations in the town, failing to provide explanations for the changes.

The updated list of canvassing locations includes the entire territory of the Komsomol 50th Anniversary Park, thus ‘enlarging’ the canvassing opportunities by 50%.

However, the amended decision causes numerous questions, since the park only covers the territory of two of the town’s constituencies, with the remaining 34 constituencies being banned for canvassing. The authorities’ decision also reminds of possible civil liability for maintaining canvassing activities in locations not specified on the list.
