The human rights activist Uladzimir Malei addressed the central electoral commission, Brest oblast executive committee and the presidium of Brest oblast Soviet of deputies with the demand to exclude from Mukhavets district electoral commission #4 its member Alexander Frantsevich. The reason is that during the last parliamentary elections Frantsevich had not admitted to the final counting of ballots and the final minutes the commission member U.Karpinchyk who had been charged with it by the secretary of the commission.

In her letter #01-09/M-38 the head of the central electoral commission Lidziya Yarmoshyna answered that this demand was not grounded on the norms of the electoral legislation and referred to articles 36, 68 and 76 of the Electoral Code, which, to U.Malei’s mind, have no relation to this case.

The deputy head of Brest oblast executive committee Leanid Tsupryk answered in letter #04-13/22/1: ‘Your attitude to the commission member Frantsevich A.U. is subjective and are not a reason to exclude him from the commission.’
