Today, on 25 April, Aliaksandr Irkho, leader of the local committee of the Belarusian Social Democratic Party (Narodnaya Hramada), running for the Mahiliou City Council, received a summons to the local KGB department. The writ does not mention whether the candidate is a witness or a suspect.

The incident may be tied to the candidate’s failure to appear at the city’s tax inspection a few days earlier.
