As of 1 June, Viktar Babaryka's nomination group has gathered almost 100 000 signatures since 21 May, the presidential contender wrote on social media

"The collection of signature continues, and we have almost achieved the first milestone of 100 000 signatures! But I am confident that we are capable of much more! Our target is 1 million!" the politician wrote.

100 000 signatures are the required minimum to qualify for registration as a presidential candidate.

The collection of signatures will end on 19 June. Babaryka's team will have slightly more than two weeks to collect 900 000 signatures more to meet the target.
