This information was obtained from Leanid Svetsik, an observer at the Pershamaiski and the Kastrychnitski district election commissions of Vitsebsk. The potential candidate for president Pravalski refuses to comment on the situation till receiving a final decision from the Central Election Commission.

According to Mr. Svetsik, at a sitting of the Kastrychnitski District Election Commission it was stated that the signatures in support of Uladzimir Pravalski had been verified twice. At first the commission analyzed 8 signatures sheets and found some mistakes and defects. After this the commission analyzed 6 more sheets. A total of 194 signatures were verified and 33.5% of them were found invalid, which served as the reason to declare invalid all remaining ones.

The Pershamaiski District Election Commission didn’t call any concrete numbers. ‘First of all, I wasn’t invited to the sitting, though I am a registered observer. Secondly, they just told me that Pravalski’s signatures didn’t pass the verification,’ says Mr. Svetsik.

Meanwhile, the largest number of signatures in support of Uladzimir Pravalski, about 108 thousand, was passed to the Pershamaiski District Election Commission. Bear in mind that the signatures in support of his candidacy had been collected almost solely in Vitsebsk.
