Homieĺ: Students and professors excused from lectures to attend meeting with Lukashenka’s trustee
On September 22, the Homieĺ-Raton free trade zone hosted a meeting with Chairman of the Homieĺ Regional Executive Committee, Uladzimir Dvornik, who spoke as a trustee of presidential candidate Aliaksandr Lukashenka with the rectors, professors and students of local universities.
According to those present at the meeting, the high official did not call to come to the polls and did not campaign for the incumbent.
However, at the time of the meeting many students and professors were supposed to be in their universities.
“The very fact of the meeting is good,” says local observer Viktar Adzinochanka. “I support the idea that such meetings should be held more frequently. But in this case, Uladzimir Dvornik acted as the trustee of a candidate, and the preparation of the meeting involved administrative resources, since students and professors were out of classes.”
