Constituency election commissions are instructed not to gather excessive information about candidates

As was previously reported, an election commission member wanted to verify the signature sheets of a potential candidate for deputy from the Movement For Freedom (MFF) Aliaksandr Rusevich and to visit voters’ homes together with him to see whether people are signing actively for him.

Aliaksandr Rusevich considered such methods as pressure aimed to interfere with the work of his initiative group and appealed against the constituency election commission’s abuse of authority to a higher commission.

A reply came from the higher election commission signed by deputy Zmitser Shautsou, who found no pressure in the commission’s actions, but, at the same time, ordered constituency commissions not to gather excessive information about the candidates.
