Minsk city election commission has denied Ales Lahvinets complaint. The politicians appeal was discussed on August 17.

The city election commission did not find any traces of illegal refusal to register Aleh Lahvinets. It is forbidden to distribute printed editions among voters during signature collection campaigns, the commission members noted. Lahvinets did not refute the fact that Narodnaya Volya was being given out. The commission referred to the corresponding law.

The problem of bribery of voters (Lahvinets was accused of it due to the distribution of the newspaper) was not discussed.
