In eight constituencies of Svetlahorsk district the quantity of voters diverges from the norm provided by the Electoral Code. Article 15 of the Code states that constituencies are formed by equal amounts of voters, with 10% of admissible deviation. 

Decision #5 of 29 January 2010 by Svetlahorsk district election commission violated the electoral legislation by forming 7 constituencies with lower number of voters and one – where the figure exceeds the legal provision.
