Ihar Maslouski's picket at the "Locomotive" stadium in Brest

Ihar Maslouski who ran for the Parliament at Brest-Central election constituency #2, received an answer to his complaint concerning determination of places for agitation pickets and meetings by the Brest authorities.

In this complaint Maslouski argued that the Brest City Executive Committee deliberately allowed agitation only in unfrequented places. In particular, on 14 September Maslouski and his electioneering agents held a picket at one of such places, the “Locomotive” stadium.

They didn’t saw a single person at the stadium during the picket which lasted for one hour.

However, the Central Election Commission answered “that all conditions for agitation were created on the territory of Brest-Central election constituency #2”. Mr. Maslouski considers it as a formal come-off, as far as the CEC head Lidziya Yarmoshyna didn’t answer concrete questions, such as how an effective agitation campaign can be held in the places where there are no people.
