In Homel, precinct commission #46 of the Studentskaya constituency refused to obey the demand of Kanstantsin Zhukouski, a candidate for the Homel Regional Council of Deputies, to hang out the protocol of early voting or familiarize him with it. ‘When I came to the precinct, there was no protocol there. As I found out, they hadn’t composed it at all, as a member of the commission started filling it in my presence. I called the police, but they didn’t pay any reaction to the violation. I phoned to the Central Election Commission, but there’s still no protocol, though the CEC obliged the commissions to hang out the reports for one day,’ explained Mr. Zhukouski.

A similar situation also occurred at the Studentskaya constituency yesterday, but the protocols were hanged out after interference of the Central Election Commission.
