Zhlobin activists of “Fair World” are threatened with dismissal
The reason is that party activists tried to become members of district election commissions.
Employers press on members of the Belarusian leftist
party “Fair World”. Valery Rybchanka
from Zhlobin, the head of the district party branch and a possible
parliamentary candidate, said:
“I'd prefer not to mention particular names and firms. It does not matter. There's another interesting thing. Though none of “Fair World” representatives became members of election commissions, our employers began to press on us. The district executive committee told employers the names of people who tried to get to commissions. Some members of my team were asked by their bosses: 'Why did not you tell us you are a member of an opposition party? Do you want us not to extend the employment contract with you?”
