According to information which was received by a candidate of the Belarusian Popular Front Siarhei Antonau, his rival, a candidate for the Parliament at Bykhau election constituency #81, head of the Slauharad Ditrict Council and the Slauharad district organization of the “Belaya Rus” Tatsiana Kananchuk has held an electoral meeting with the labor collective of the Bykhau bread-baking plant during the working hours.

“Several workers of the bread-baking plant told me about this meeting, both personally and over the telephone, “ says Siarhei Antonau. “The meeting at the Bykhau bread-baking plant started after 8 a.m. People were directed to it on an order of the administration. What equal conditions for candidates can we talk about then?

The second electoral meeting of Tatsiana Kananchuk was held at the hall of the district library at 2.20p.m., and people were also sent there by their brass.”

Now Mr. Antonau considers the possibility of filing an appeal against the unlawful actions of Tatsiana Kananchuk to the constituency election commission.
