Composition of election commissions didn’t change much in Polatsk
The state press has published information about the precinct election commissions of Polatsk. The composition of the commissions didn’t change much compared to the last two years (since the parliamentary elections 2008).
For instance, 11 out of 15 members of precinct commission #1 in Polatsk were its members during the parliamentary elections. The same concerns 8 out of 15 members of precinct commissions #2 and #3 and 12 out of 15 members of precinct commission #4. A similar situation is observed at the remaining 30 precincts of Polatsk. The composition of precinct commissions remains unchanged.
As in the previous years, the places of work of members of the precinct commissions aren’t published. 23 out of 34 precincts are located in secondary schools of the city and principals and deputy principals of the schools are members of these commissions. About a half of members of the commissions are teachers who are directly depended on the school administration.
