The electoral headquarters of candidate Aliaksei Valabuyeu received two denials to their applications for holding electoral pickets in the yards of the houses that are situated on the territory of the election constituency where the candidate is running. The officials state in their answers that there are enough places that had been officially determined for agitation meetings. Bear in mind that there are only two such places, the Budaunik stadium and the Budaunik Palace of Culture. Both of them are situated on the town outskirts, quite far from the majority of constituencies.

Activists of Aliaksei Valabuyeu’s team are convinced that such situation prevents them from holding a full-scale agitation campaign. They addressed the Central Election Commissions with a complaint at the end of March. As a result, on 31 March the CEC recommended the Salihorsk district executive committee to review its decision on determination of places for agitation. However, there is still no information about any progress in this direction. That’s why Valabuyeu’s team addressed the executive committee and the CEC with appropriate complaints, demanding to punish the officials for inaction.
