Salihorsk: number of electors decreases
Two electoral districts were formed in Salihorsk administrative district by Central Electoral Commission’s ruling #16 of 25 June 2008. These are Salihorsk town electoral district #75, which includes almost the whole territory of the town of Salihorsk and 67 531 electors, and Salihorsk rural electoral district #76, which includes the whole territory of Kapyl district, all villages of Salihorsk administrative district and a part of the town of Salihorsk and has 68 425 electors.
Though the territories of these electoral districts remain almost unchanged, the number of electors has considerably decreased in comparison with the last election to the Chamber of Representatives, which was held in 2004. Salihorsk town electoral district used to have 70 811 electors and Salihorsk rural electoral district used to have 70 910 electors. Thus, for the four last years the number of electors in the former lost 3 280 electors and in the latter – 2 500.
The same thing is observed in Niasvizh and Slutsk electoral districts. The number of electors in Slutsk administrative district and in Slutsk is 3 200 smaller in comparison with 2004, and in Kletsk and Niasvizh districts the number is 2 500.
