Applications of Zhodzina Democrats Remain Unanswered
Aliaksei Lapitski, leader of Zhodzina branch of the Belarusian People’s Front, informed RFE/RL that about two dozens of the local democratic activists applied to Zhodzina City Executive Committee, asking to include them into polling station election commissions as members. All of them abided by the existing procedure and gathered the necessary number of signatures from the citizens. They still have received no answer.
According to Mr. Lapitski, the pretenders to membership in the commissions expressed their intention to personally attend the consideration of their candidacies at the sitting of the executive committee and Zhodzina City Soviet. However, they still have no information when it will be held.
