The administration of a sugar factory in the town of Slutsk has reportedly prohibited its employees to support the nomination of local alternative candidate Aliaksandr Shylovich.

Aliaksandr Shylovich says he has been repeatedly harassed by local authorities, especially ahead and during election campaigns. In particular, he was going to run in the 2010 local elections, but his nomination was dismissed. An appeal against the decision he later submitted to local court was not met.

Meanwhile, the potential candidate has already collected some 200 signatures.
