Mahilioŭ: Kastryčnicki District Election Commission found no cases of collection of signatures for Lukashenka at enterprises

At the same time, the Mahilioŭ Regional Election Commission informed the public activist Aliaksei Paulouski that the signatures were collected at state enterprises in the free time, without coercion, and only by members of the initiative group of Aliaksandr Lukashenka.

“During the collection of signatures citizens repeatedly informed me about the collection of signatures in support of Aliaksandr Lukashenka at almost all Mahilioŭ enterprises. The signatures were collected under the threat of not extending the labor contracts, during the working hours and by the people who weren't members of Lukashenka's initiative group. According to my information, this was done at about 15 enterprises,” commented Mr. Paulouski.

He believes that the answers of the election commissions don't correspond reality and intends to appeal them to the prosecutor's office.
