Mazyr: election commissions don’t work on first day of registration of initiative groups
In Mazyr, election commissions didn’t work on 14 February, the first day of registration of the initiative groups of candidates to the local Soviets of Deputies according to the time schedule of the Central Election Commission. The requirements of the Election Code were ignored by the officials responsible for the operating schedule of the Mazyr district election commission.
On the other hand, candidates cannot be nominated, as the names, numbers, boundaries and other necessary information about the local constituency commissions hasn’t been published in the state-owned press, though Larysa Chornaya, chief editor of the district newspaper Zhyttsio Palessia, is a member of the Mazyr district election commission.
