Candidate Dzmitry Kazlou invited everyone to Kastrychnitskaya Square in Minsk at 18.00 on November 15.

Well-known Vorsha video blogger Dzmitry Kazlou was summoned to a meeting of the election commission of the Vorsha town constituency No. 25 yesterday. The meeting was scheduled for the official day off on November 7, the press service of the European Belarus civil campaign reports.

Dzmitry Kazlou was accused of "calling to disrupt or cancel the elections of deputies of the House of Representatives". The commission found it in the use of the slogan "Basta to False Elections" during the campaign. The decision to cancel the registration of the activist as a candidate for deputy was signed by the head of the commission, S.Voranau.

- Our slogans "Basta to False Elections," "Basta to the Collective Farm Dictatorship" have long been pain in the neck for the commission, - Dzmitry Kazlou said. - In general, they seem to fear the word "basta!" like the plague. In reality, the slogan "Basta to False Elections" should be the slogan of any election commission. It's the opposite here. Probably, there is no one who believes that fair elections are taking place in our country.

I will appeal the decision of the commission and invite everyone to Kastrychnitskaya Square in Minsk on November 15 at 18.00. We will think about what to do next.
