The application has been signed by representatives of the Belarusian Popular Front party Alyaksei Yanukevich, the United Civil Party Uladzimir Ramanouski, the movement "For Freedom" Yury Hubarevich and member of the steering committee for creating the party "Belarusian Christian Democracy" Dzyanis Sadouski.
According to BPF Chairman Alyaksei Yanukevich, the Minsk city executive committee's official accepted the application in a friendly manner, and even informed the phone number which they should call several days later to find out the person responsible for consideration of this application.
The gathering of participants is planned near the Botanic Garden this year. Usually it was near the Academy of Sciences. Yanukevich has explained the reason in a comment to Euroradio.
Alyaksei Yanukevich: "There are some construction or re-decoration works in progress at the Academy of Sciences now. A part of the square is sealed by a fence. At present moment we have no information on whether these works will be completed by March 24. If they are not, this may be the reason for refusal. We looked for another ground in the city center. We wanted it to be a non-confrontational one, so that we had chance to get a positive reply. So we chose the ground near the Botanic Garden".
