The Biaroza District Executive Committee (DEC) ignored the delegation by the Brest Regional Council of the Belarusian Popular Front Party of three members of the party to the sitting of the Biaroza DEC on formation of the precinct election commissions.

The sitting started at 8.15 a.m. on 1 November, and the information about it was uploaded to the website of the executive committee at this very time. The officials also ignored the request of the BPF delegates to inform them about the time and place of the sitting which they had submitted to the DEC in advance.

Representatives of the BPF are going to file complaints against violations of the electoral legislation.


The Chairperson of the Zhodzina Town Executive Committee Mikhal Amel’ianchuk blankly refused to admit the human rights defender Aliaksei Lapitski to the sitting on formation of the precinct election commissions of Zhodzina, though earlier he had allowed him to attend the sitting on formation of the Zhodzina Town Election Commission.

In his answer to the human rights defender he refers to Article 13 of the Electoral Code that regulates the rules of observers, ignoring the fact that Mr. Lapitski filed his application as an elector and a citizen of the Republic of Belarus.
