22 candidates from the MFF. Who was registered?

22 candidates from the MFF. Who was registered?

Only 22 of the 52 contenders for candidates were officially registered.

This year, members of the Movement For Freedom (MFF) were nominated in three different ways — by collecting signatures, through party nomination, and through the MFF itself as an NGO.

Unfortunately, the regime uses nomination by collecting signatures for squeezing out strong candidates. This is how most candidates were denied registration, including MFF Chairman Yuri Hubarevich and his deputy Viktar Yanchurevich, as well as MFF Council member Raman Kisliak, who was nominated as part of the team standing against the construction of a battery factory in Brest. (1,400 signatures were collected in his support.) Partisan nominees allegedly had inaccuracies in their declarations, while nominees from the MFF as an NGO were denied registration with reference to the Election Code, ignoring the fact that the Constitution takes precedence over any laws and decrees, and Articles 5, 69, and 137 of the Constitution show that not only political parties but also NGOs have the right to nominate their candidates.

Who was eventually registered?

1. Malashchanka Tatsiana, No. 2 Baranavichi constituency
