Registration of Tatsiana Karatkevich as presidential candidate is an indication that made a deal with government, said politician.

Leader of the party Fair World Syarhei Kalyakin said that of the required 100 thousand for his presidential nomination was collected slightly more than 64 thousand signatures. Today, he announced to the journalists the results of the signature collection campaign. According to him, the main reason for the failure of the campaign is political apathy and fear of the Belarusian society.

Mr Kalyakin is also convinced that apart from Mr Lukashenka, none of the candidates for the presidency has collected the required number of citizens' signatures.

Mr Kalyakin: "Today, no campaign has collected the necessary 100,000 signatures. Except for Alyaksandr Lukashenka. As for Tatsiana Karatkevich, her participation in the elections, he registration are for me the evidence that her team made a deal with the government. In case if the team of Karatkevich strike a deal with conscience and with the government, we will no longer consider the Tell the Truth as a democratic organization and stop all sorts of political contacts with it. We will consider them on a par with pro-government organizations such as Belaya Rus, Belarusian Republican Youth Union, and so on."


Mr Kalyakin calls upon the people who signed for him to vote against everyone.
