Hrodna authorities refuse to give any information on the requests of commission candidates, human rights activists, party leaders, journalists, and ordinary citizens about the lists of election commission members. They stick to the explanation that all information is available in the press.


However, Hrodna official newspapers failed to publish the commission lists. Only the local Perspectiva newspaper published the list of district commission members in Hrodna rural district #52. UCP representative Alexander Pahuliayeu is a member of this commission. Hrodna authorities continue to keep in secret the names of the people who became members of other district commissions in Hrodna region. The next issue of Hrodzenskaya Prauda, which is supposed to publish the lists, will come out only on Saturday, July 19th.
