Observer Siarhei Vakulenka claims that the ballots boxes, as well as the portable boxes, were carried out of Brest’s polling station #55. As a result, neither the observers nor the election commission members could for some time observe their safety.

It was not until the observer referred to the recommendations by the Central Election Commission, that the election commission chair Ms. Bratsiankova ordered to carry the ballot boxes back to the polling station.

Mr. Vakulenka lodged a statement with the City Election Commission on the violation of Article 51 of the Electoral Code.
