Candidates Franak Viachorka, running for the Mazyr District Council, and Uladzimir Tseliapun, running for the Homel Regional Council, claim that they were forced to meet their voters outside the building of House of Culture ‘40tth Anniversary of October’, after the premises appeared to be occupied by a film screening.

Mr. Tseliapun applied for holding the meeting in the House of Culture back on 12 April. Two days later, on 14 April the candidate addressed Mr. Sushcheuski, Prosecutor of Mazyr District, with a demand to exercise control over the implementation of the Electoral Code by Mazyr district executive committee and head of the House of Culture. However, the demand was left unattended.
