Central Election Commission continues ignoring violations made by Lukashenka’s campaign team
citizen of Aziory (the Hrodna region) Kanstantsin Dzmitryieu received an answer
to his complaint to the Central Election Commission, signed by the CEC Chairperson
The complaint concerned a conflict that started in the town of Aziory when the officer of the local agricultural farm Mikhail Karshakouski told his subordinates to bring signatures for signing in support of Aliaksandr Lukashenka during the working hours. Moreover, the signature sheets in which the people had to sign contained the member of another collector of signatures, A.Kuzhelinau, deputy Chairperson of the farm on ideological work. The worker of the farm Kanstantsin Dzmitryieu was proposed to sign for Lukashenka though he doesn’t even have the Belarusian citizenship.
However, during its field visit for checking-up these facts the CEC didn’t find any violations. The representative of the CEC whose name remains unknown didn’t even meet with Mr. Dzmitryieu.
