Minsk: United Civil Party nominates ten members to election constituencies
UCP members were nominated to half of the 20 constituency election commissions of Minsk. According to the deputy head of the Minsk city UCP organization Dzmitry Kavalhin, an accent on professionalism was made during the choice of nominees – most of them have already worked in election commissions of different levels several times, or even headed them. Among them there are even professional lawyers, such as the deputy head of the UCP Antanina Kavaliova.
However, despite the high professionalism of the nominees Mr. Kavalhin has little hope for their inclusion in the commissions.
At the same time, Movement “For Freedom” decided not to nominate commission members and candidates for the election. It deputy head Yury Hubarevich stated that the movement will take an active part in the information and agitation campaign, attend electoral meetings and support the independent candidates whose views would be close to that of Movember “For Freedom”.
