Ihar Maslouski, Brest leader of the Belarusian Social Democratic Party (Hramada) running for Parliament in local constituency No. 2, has lodged a complaint with the city’s executive committee, saying the current election campaigning opportunities are extremely limited.

In his complaint, Ihar Maslouski says that decision No. 1611 by Brest city executive committee allows staging election pickets in two locations of the constituency only: both are situated in sports facilities. All other locations mentioned in the decision are situated outside the constituency. Therefore, holding meetings with voters is nearly impossible, says the candidate.
