The Hrodna oblast territorial election commission considered the complaint lodged by Raman Yurhel against the refusal of the constituency commission to register him as an observer.

R.Yurhel was nominated as an observer from the Belarusian Helsinki Committee to the Vishniavetskaya election constituency #12. At first he was registered by the commission. However, later the observer was denied accreditation by Siarhei Siamashka, the commission Chairperson.

Having considered Yurhel’s complaint, the oblast election commission mailed to the observer the answer where it was stated that the constituency commission had lawfully refused to register him as an observer.

Thus, the Vishniavetskaya election constituency #12 was left without independent observers. Raman Yurhel lodged the Kastryhnitski district procuracy in Hrodna a complaint against the decision of the Hrodna oblast election commission.
