Here's an excerpt from the text version: “All those who took floor at the assembly said much good about Aliaksandr Paleichuk, thanked him for the labor conditions created by him and worthy salaries, for taking care about people and doing much to increase their welfare. The agriculturists expressed the hope that he will also do everything possible for their improvement of their life at the highest legislative organ of the country.

The commission didn't have to count the votes for a long time – the opinion was unanimous – he is worth it!”
