Strange anomalies in the process of signature collection

Paulyuk Bykouski analyzes anomalies in the process of signature collection in support of presidential candidates this year. The signature collectors of acting president Lukashenka and Cossack leader Ulakhovich were strangely productive – one signature collector for Lukashenka gathered 167 signatures, while member of the initiative of Ulakhovich gathered 112 signatures.

People who have some experience in collecting signatures seriously doubt such efficiency from the part of the initiative campaigns of two candidates.

One can expect the repetition of 2010 scenario – everybody who will send more than 100 thousand signatures to the Central Election Committee will be registered, and their signatures will not be examined properly.
