District commissions still haven’t started their work
BHC observer Eduard Balanchuk did not manage to get to Maladechna rural district commission # 71 on July 17th. He was told the commission still had not started its work and still had no office.
There is a similar situation at Vileika election district # 64. On July 18th BHC observer Aliaksei Siudak came to the official address of the commission (Partyzanskaya, 40 – the building of the district administration). On the first floor he even saw the signs that show the way to the office of the commission. However, the doors were locked. At the same time, the first session of the commission took place on July 15th, where the chair, deputy chair and the secretary of the commission were elected. The policeman who was on duty in that building explained one should address all questions to the organizational department of the local administration which had created the commission.
