Hrodna Kastrychnitski Court dismissed a claim lodged by a group of the city residents against violations during the formation of local divisional election commissions. The claimants argued that their representative Aleh Kalinkou was not elected member of the divisional election commission of Kupala constituency number 14 as a result of violations of the formation procedures.

The defendant representing the city authorities failed to provide a record of the meeting for the formation of the commission. However, Judge Tatsiana Klimava ruled against the claimants due to the fact that only 5 representatives of Mr. Kalinkou (instead of all 10) filed the claim.
