Maryna Adamovich appeals ban on registration of Mikalai Statkevich’s campaign team

Maryna Adamovich, the wife of political prisoner Mikalai Statkevich, who is his legal representative and the head of the initiative group for his nomination as a presidential candidate, filed yesterday an appeal in the Supreme Court against the CEC's refusal to register the initiative group. The CEC decision was adopted on 20 July.

Maryna Adamovich considers that the refusal is unlawful and violates the Electoral Code, which differentiates between the registration of initiative groups and candidate registration.

According to Maryna Adamovich, the appeal may be considered as early as on 24 July.
