The students of the Faculty of Information Technology and Robotechnics of the Belarusian National Technology University have been reportedly promised a day off, on the conditions they go to the polls before the week-end.

According to information received by activists of the Human Rights Defenders for Free Elections campaign, there is no official decree by University’s administration announcing 21 and 22 September (Friday and Saturday) days off. However, there reportedly is an oral promise.

Reports say that similar coercion has been used against the student’s of University’s Construction Faculty. However, the administration denies the fact.
