The election commission of Krychau constituency No. 83 has denied registration of an initiative group of Valery Karankevich, after 6 out of 15 of his supporters withdrew their signatures for nominating him as a candidate for Parliament.

According to Mr. Karankevich, the people were intimidated by their employers. “I know the names of two officials of Khotsimsk district executive committee who orchestrated the pressure,” says Valery Karankevich.

Valery Karankevich says he is going to submit another application with new members of his initiative group.
