Only 6 pro-democrat activists were registered candidates for the Svetlahorsk district council.

Two opposition activists were refused registration by the district election commission: BPF member Viktar Akhramchuk was not registered because part of the data on the signature sheets was written by his campaign team members, not by the voters themselves; Just World activist Tatsiana Yurkevich was refused registration due to her failure to declare a car trailer in her application.

In total, 50 candidates are registered in 40 constituencies of the district, i.e. only 10 of them do not represent the state.
