Observer Viktar Syrytsa has received a runaround from the head of Baranavichy western district electoral commission #5 Alexander Rusenchyk. In his address to the official Syrytsa stated that on 25 July in the hall of the club of building trust #25 five teachers from each school of Baranavichy were gathered and the head of the personnel department of Baranavichy city executive committee Aleh Savos, who was not a member of an electoral commission, demanded that the teachers collected signatures for the pro-governmental candidate, Major-General Vankovich.

In his address the observer asked A.Rusenchyk to check the information and take an appropriate decision. The official answered that during the meeting A.Savos was giving explanations concerning the plan of organization of the election to the Chamber of Representatives in the city of Baranavichy. The question with forcing people to collect signatures remains unanswered.
