— On the Constitution of the state provides equal rights to all to conduct economic and other activities, guarantees equal protection and equal conditions for development of all forms of ownership, guarantees to everyone equal opportunities for free utilisation of abilities and property for entrepreneurial legal economic activities. And the President is the guarantor of the Constitution. But the reality is that oligarch, but we can not! — resented on this occasion, the Chairman of the NGO “Perspective” Anatoly Shumchanka.
Entrepreneurs sent a letter to the presidential Administration, the Ministry of Antimonopoly regulation and trade and Minsk city Executive Committee, which was asked to return to the streets of Minsk kiosks retail trade and urged officials to make transparent the distribution of seats for the stalls, to carry it through the auction with the participation of small businesses.
