Salihorsk education dormitories have been declared unavailable for canvassing activities, after the district election committee took the side of local education officials, who have repeatedly denied access to hostels to campaign teams of pro-democratic candidates, referring to internal regulations.

The official statement by the committee says that ‘there are no special procedures for canvassing activities in hostels.’
