Ryhor Kastusiou, candidate representing the Belarusian Popular Front in Shklou constituency No. 90, has lodged a complaint with the Central Election Commission, saying that “candidate A. Aheyeu has abused administrative resources” to canvass for votes.

The complaint was lodged after an earlier appeal by the opposition candidate was not replied by constituency election commission No. 90.

Therefore, Ryhor Kastusiou urges the CEC to revoke registration of Aliaksandr Aheyeu.

According to Mr. Kastusiou, the pro-government candidate keeps violating the Electoral Code. In particular, a number of his meetings with voters have been arranged at local enterprises with the use of administrative resources.

Apart from that, Ryhor Kastusiou was not allowed attending his rival’s meeting with voters held in a cheese-making factory in the town of Bialynichy on 11 September.
