7 candidates to run for vacant MP seat in Homel
No deputies were elected in this constituency in 2012. The pro-government and opposition candidates withdrew and electors did not vote for the LDP candidate back then.
CEC secretary Mikalai Lazavik has commented on the current candidates:
"There are 7 candidates for one seat in that constituency. Two of them represent political parties – the Fair World and the United Civil Party. The rest are unaffiliated.”
Some of the candidates collected signatures in workers' associations. There are three women among them. There is a doctor, teacher, associate professor, fitter, etc.
The parliamentary elections are combined with the local elections appointed for March 23 in Homel.
