Uladizmir Pakala, head of Slonim District Housing and Public Utilities Department, is reportedly using his position to force his employees to vote early.

The official’s wife, who is also employed at the Department, has phoned every employee and urged them to go to the polls today or tomorrow and cast their ballots for pro-government candidate Ala Sopikava. The employees were also threatened with troubles at work, in case they do not vote early.
