The Kobryn-based “Narodnaya Trybuna” state-owned newspaper has launched a campaign of election advertising of Aliaksandr Zazulia, member of the House of Representatives who is running for Parliament in local constituency No. 12 again, despite the fact that the Electoral Code prohibits campaigning until the parliamentary hopefuls are officially registered as candidates.

The latest issue of the newspaper run by Brest regional executive committee and the Regional Council of Deputies features an extensive article where the current MP advertises himself, saying that he is the best candidate for Parliament.
