The head of the Haradok district branch of the Belarusian Popular Front Leanid Autukhou who collects signatures for his nomination in Vitsebsk-village constituency #21, filed an appeal to the Central Election Commission against the refusal of the constituency commission to show him the list of members of the electoral team of prospective candidate Uladzimir Shytsko, head of the cadet college.

According to Autukhou's information, people who are not members of Shytsko's team collect signatures in his support in the villages which are located on the territory of the election constituency.

“The people tell me that the heads of village administrations and enterprises collect signatures in support of my rival. It is a doubtless violation. That's why I decided to study the list of members of his electoral team. The constituency election commission refused to show the list, as it is allegedly “private information about these people”. However, according to the Constitution, we have public elections, that's why the list of members of an electoral team cannot be a secret.

Leanid Autukhou also filed another appeal – against the refusal of the constituency election commission to show him the minutes of its sittings, which also belong to public information.
