Social Democrats Haradok activist denied membership on election commission over ‘brawler’s reputation’
Leanid Haravy, Haradok member of the Belarusian Social Democratic Party ‘Hramada’, has lodged a complaint against local authorities’ decision to dismiss his nomination for the town’s election commission.
At a joint meeting of Haradok district executive committee and the presidium of council of deputies on 28 September, deputy chair of the executive committee Ms. Burunova said that Leanid Haravy had not been included in the election commission, since he is known for ‘having made rows in election commissions and had been prosecuted for interfering with the commissions’ work.’
Mr. Haravy says the statement by the official is false and unlawful and demands a repeal of the decision on the formation of local election commissions.
