According to official data, 590 candidates will run for 530 seats in the district councils of Hrodna region, i.e. in 470 out of the 530 region’s constituencies will be non-alternative. A similar situation is reported of Hrodna village councils, with 2,103 candidates running for 2,087 seats.

Bearing in mind the recent revocation of voter turnout quota, the elections are likely to be announced eligible. However, in reality this means that the election turns into mere non-alternative voting.
