13 Babruisk members of the Belarusian Christian Democracy party were refused registration as candidates due to various reasons, e.g.  Viachaslau Sheleh’s application was turned down after the election  commission declared 3 signatures collected by his campaign team fake. Mr. Sheleh says he is going to appeal the refusal at the regional election commission.

Another activist Mrs. Iryna Uvarava was not registered, because one of her signature sheets was lost. She says she has the copies of all the sheets and is going to appeal the decision.

Taisia Kabanchuk was accused of ‘collecting signatures in a different district.’
