The Salihorsk district election commission refused to accredit Leanid Markhotka as an observer from the Belarusian Helsinki Committee, though the human rights defender presented to it the appropriate extract from the minutes of a sitting of the BHC Council. The human rights defender is going to continue the attempt to obtain the accreditation. Now he is collecting signatures among the local electors in support for his nomination as an observer, in order to use this way of nomination.

Bear in mind, that opposition activist Ivan Shyla was registered as an observer at the Salihorsk district election commission only on the second attempt. Having received a denial, he collected the necessary number of signatures for the second time.
