Baranavičy: Mikalai Charnavus not inlcuded in electoral team of Aliaksandr Lukashenka
June 30, Baranavičy entrepreneur and social activist Mikalai Charnavus filed an appeal to Baranavičy City Executive Committee, asking to include him and four more people in the electoral team of the incumbent president, Aliaksandr Lukashenka.
According to him, on July 13 he was informed in writing that in accordance with Art. 61 of the Electoral Code the lists of members of the electoral teams are passed for registration by the Central Election Commission by the person who intends to run for presidency.
“Thus, I was openly told that I appealed to the wrong address. Then I decided to go to the ideological department of the executive committee, but even there I wasn't answered who the electoral team of Aliaksandr Lukashenka was formed by,” points Mr. Charnavus.
The same day, July 13, the social activist decided to appeal directly to the incumbent president, and sent to his e-mail his application for inclusion in the initiative group, promising to collect 4,000 valid signatures of voters in support of his candidacy.
Taking into account the fact that the list of members of the electoral team of Aliaksandr Lukashenka was filed to the CEC on July 14 and M. Charnavus wasn't contacted after his appeal, his surname must be absent in the list.
