Nasha Niva visits the neighbors of potential candidates
Nasha Niva’s correspondent visited residences of potential candidates to presidency – Anatol Lyabedzka, Viktar Tsiareshchanka, Siarhei Kaliakin, Siarhei Haidukevich, and Tatsiana Karatkevich. The opinions of their neighbors in regards to their candidacies ranged from aggressive rejection to moderate approval. Karatkevich’s elderly neighbor, for example, told that Tatsiana was a very good girl, but she would vote for the incumbent president since “these are presidential elections, so we need to vote for the president”.
