According to Anatol Novikau, head of the ‘Just World’ Brest district office, nine activists of the party were not allowed to submit their applications by members of Damachava village election commission on 15 March. The officials claimed that their working day was over, while the activists say it was 18.55 and their applications should have been registered.

Mr. Novikau says the party has lodged complaints against the alleged violation of the Electoral Code with Brest district election commission and the Central Election Commission.
