Vitsebsk: parents of school-children forced to give written undertakings to vote for Lukashenka
At school No. 38 in Viciebsk, the parents who attended a parental assembly were told to give undertakings they would vote early for Lukashenka. This was reported to the coordinator of the Belarusian Christian Democracy Tatsiana Seviarynets by the mother of a first-grade pupil.
“Earlier, school authorities used to hold parental assemblies during the early voting (five days before the day of voting) and asked the parents to come with their passports. Now, however, they have become bolder and take written undertakings,” points Mrs. Seviarynets.
Representatives of the BCD in Viciebsk and the Viciebsk region intend to check whether such practice also exists in other schools, informs the BCD website.
