Minsk: hidden agitation?
A poster with congratulations on 3 July (the official
Independence Day) from a member of the House of Representatives of the National
Assembly Vital Busko appeared on the territory of electoral constituency #107,
at the tramway stop “Electronika” on Lahoiski
Mr. Busko is the head of the Standing Commission of the House of Representatives on international affairs and CIS. During the parliamentary election of 2008 he won at Uskhodniaya electoral constituency #107.
If Mr. Busko intends to run at the upcoming election, this congratulation poster can be considered as a hidden agitation on his behalf. Moreover, it is unclear who financed the poster and who gave the permission for posting it on the billboard.
