According to the information of Siarhei Malchyk, a proxy of a candidate at Hrodna-Tsentralnaya electoral constituency #50 Siarhei Antusevich, nothing has changed in the procedure of vote counting since the previous electoral campaign. Members of electoral commissions pass the information about the results of their calculation of votes to the heads of the commissions, without making any announcements. Independent observers and representatives of wide public have no opportunity to control the ‘calculations’ performed by the heads of commissions. Even members of the commissions cannot check whether their numbers are calculated right. So, heads of electoral commissions have great possibilities for forging the results of voting.
