The election commissions of Hrodna’s Lieninski and Kastryčnicki districts have found invalid all the 11,509 signatures that were handed over by the nomination group of presidential contender Viktar Tsiareshchanka. The signature sheets featured names of deceased people died, as well as the names of fictitious individuals, whose existence is not confirmed by the Department of Citizenship and Migration.

The issue of falsified signatures will be heard at the nearest meeting of the Central Election Commission. Police may open a criminal case to investigate the facts of falsifications and violations of electoral law.
