Anatol Sakharusha, a proxy of the presidential candidate Ryhor Kastusiou received an answer from the Biaroza District Executive Committee to his complaint concerning the failure of the Biaroza District Executive Committee to include the town of Malech (which has about 2,000 dwellers) in the list of the places where candidates and their proxies are allowed to hold canvassing events.

The answer was delivered with violation of the legal terms, on 2 December afternoon, though officers of the executive committee promised to do it in the morning, so that Mr. Sakharusha would have some time to inform the local dwellers about a meeting with the candidate in Malech.

A. Sakharusha is informed that the ruling of the district executive committee of 10 November 2010 won’t be abolished, but electoral mass events can be conducted in conformity with the legislation, which means that an application for a mass action must be filed with the authorities 15 days before the action.
