Nonpartisan residents of Rechytsa Uladzimir Koshchanka and Vital Charniauski were nominated as observers to Rechytsa district election commission through signature collection. However, the commission refused to register them as observers and recommended to come again around August 10th.

Alena Ahafonava, BPF Party member and resident of Rechytsa, points out the commission provided a very strange motivation for denial f registration to the observers: they said there was no need to rush.

That means, the observers will not be able to attend meetings of the district election commission before August 10th. Alena Ahafonava believes that was done on purpose.
