Potential candidate Aliaksandr Melnik in Brest has received a reply from the Central Election Commission, saying that campaigning for local pro-government candidate Viktar Valiushytski, chief manager of the “TSUM” department store, is legal.

In his appeal, Mr. Melnik argued that members of Viktar Valiushytski’s initiative group campaigned for the potential candidate on the premises of Brest Maskouski District Tax Inspection. However, the official reply refers to explanations by head of the Inspection Mrs. Liliya Siniak, who claimed that campaigning activities were held during lunch break.
