The member of the Belarusian Language Society Siarhei Housha didn’t manage to register as an observer at the Baranavichy City Election Commission. On 30 September he tried to find the place where the sitting of the commission was taking place, but to no avail. On 1 October he spent all days trying to get registered as an observer at the election commission as well.

AS a result, Mr. Housha lodged a written complaint to the Central Election Commission. He said that on 1 October the website of the Baranavichy City Executive Committee informed the readers that the election commission was formed on 30 September and its address was Lenin Square 2, room 103, and its telephone was 42-49-74. However, according to Siarhei Housha, the commission is not situated on this address, the lawyer of the Society for the Protection of Consumers works there and a corresponding sign hangs on the door.
