Candidate Profile: Dzmitry Us

The 39-year-old Us studied law at Hrodna State University and directs the Trivium publishing house. He served on the Minsk city council from 1999 to 2003, and ran again for the post in this year’s local elections.

He gathered about 5,000 signatures in support of his nomination as a candidate in the Kurasoushchyna district of Minsk, far more than the threshold of 150, but officially gained only 33 percent of the votes, losing to a trade unionist. He is running as an independent.
