It can be a unique event within the limits of the whole country. The very fact of open public discussion between an independent candidate and a representative of the authorities is a precedent. The debates are scheduled for 20 April. The appropriate application has been flied with the district election commission. Valabuyeu’s headquarters plans that some 100 people will take part in this event.
