The Naroulia district state-owned newspaper published the article titled Everybody Decides on His Own, but We Call You to Make Right Choice. The content of the article leaves no doubts about the choice that is considered as right by its author, the Chairperson of the Naroulia district organization of the ‘state NGO’ Belaya Rus Siarhei Kanavod.

The journalist tries to convince the readers that they live well thanks to the politics of Mr. Lukashenka and adds that ‘everybody expressed an active support to the policy of the present head of the state’ at the electoral pickets of Lukashenka in Naroulia.

’No one has the right to exercise any pressure. Our public association calls on residents of Naroulia to support our candidate, and be sure that all members of the electoral team of A.Lukashenka will be very polite while collecting signatures,’ promises the author of the article, encouraging the electors.
