On 5 September the parliamentary candidates running at Shklou election constituency #90 Ryhor Kastusiou (from the Belarusian Popular Front Party) and Zinaida Mileshchanka (“Fair World” Party) appealed unlawful actions of their rival, deputy head of the State Control Committee of Belarus Aliaksandr Aheyeu, to the constituency election commission,

In their appeal they state that Aheyeu uses his office powers in his electoral campaign. In particular, on 23 August he held a telephone hot-line with dwellers of the Kruhliany district which is a part of Shklou election constituency #90. On 24 August he also took part in the pedagogical conference in Bialynichy and his portrait was published in the front page of the state-owned newspaper “Zara nad Druttsiu”. All these actions can be considered as unlawful agitation and violation of the principle of equality of candidates.
