Precinct election commission # 13 in Homel-Savetskaya district refused to register Leanid Udavichenkau as an observer. Vasil Ptashnikau was denied registration as an observer in precinct # 4 of Homel-Centralnaya district. Both were nominated by BPF party. The reason for the denial was lack of the stamp on the nominating documents, although, according to the Party Statute, structural units of BPF do not have stamps at all.


Interesting enough, observers in Homel-Pramyslovaya district were nominated by similar documents. Both were registered: Anatol Paplauny in precinct # 8 and Yauhen Suvorau – in precinct # 4.
