First sessions of district commissions in Homel region
On July 16th district election commissions gathered for their first session. The commission of district #35 had a session in the building of Savetski district administration of Homel city (Rechytskaya Shasha, 6). At the same time, the officially stated place of the meeting was Barykina Street, 143. No one picks up the phone of the commission at its official headquarters.
At the session of the district commission in district # 34, an administration representative refused to provide information about the number of applications to the commission and did not explain the reasons why the people who had been nominated did not get seats. Mikalai Maly, representative of Savetski administration, was elected chairman of the commission (just as at the previous parliamentary and presidential election). The commission did not discuss the calendar and schedule of its work.
