Twenty two pro-democratic representatives have been elected members of election commissions of Mahiliou region, with 3 activists on Mahiliou regional commission and 19 persons on district ones, says Yury Novikau, chair of the Coordination Council of Mahiliou Regional Coalition of Pro-Democratic Forces.

The opposition activists were nominated both through collecting signatures and by local offices of pro-democratic political parties – BPF ‘Adradzhennie’, UCP and the Leftists’ Party ‘Just World’.

Yury Novikau emphasizes low activity by pro-democratic forces at the first stage of the election.
