On 12 December the Homel activists Uladzimir Siakerka and Valery Klimau could not conduct a meeting with voters aimed at anti-Lukashenka agitation.

About 20 people gathered near the center of official trade unions at 4 p.m. where a meeting was supposed to take place. Being a person who had applied for the meeting to be held, Uladzimir Siakerka told the people that although the law allowed conducting meetings with voters aimed at agitation against Lukashenka, the election commission had prohibited it. 

The Chairperson of the Central district presidential election commission Andrei Harbachou answered to the activists' questions that 12 December was Sunday, ‘a day-off for all the employees of the mentioned establishment’.
