Valiantsin Stefanovich: ‘There are many questions to Minister of Education Radzkou, who chairs Lukashenka’s campaign team’
A few days ago, civil activists Mikita Krasnou and Viachaslau Dziyanau lodged another complaint against violations by activists of Aliaksandr Lukashenka’s campaign team, who reportedly arranged canvassing activities by unauthorized persons, including the students of Belarusian State University of Informatics and Radio Electronics. The alleged perpetrator appeared to be vice-rector of the University Khmyl.
Activist of the ‘Human Rights Defenders for Free Elections’ campaign Valiantsin Stefanovich believes this is a blatant instance of abuse of administrative resources and a violation of Paragraph 3 Article 73 of the Electoral Code, since the high education official allegedly forced his subordinates to maintain canvassing activities.
‘I would like to ask head of Aliaksandr Lukashenka’s campaign team Minister of Education Aliaksandr Radzkou to provide explanations on the mass involvement of students in canvassing pickets during their study time. ‘Human Rights Defenders for Free Elections’ activists have repeatedly reported cases of students’ involvement in Lukashenka’s canvassing pickets in downtown Minsk,’ says Valiantsin Stefanovich.
