Smarhon: quota in precinct commissions is not spread on representatives of opposition
On 3 November the
Smarhon District Executive Committee formed the precinct election commissions
in the district.
Two representatives of the Belarusian Popular Front and one representative of the Belarusian Social Democratic Party Hramada were nominated to the commissions, but none of them were included in the commissions.
The participants of the sitting of the executive committee voted separately against each of these three candidacies and unanimously decided not to include them.
The present human rights defender Ales Dzerhachou asked why no representatives of opposition parties were included in the precinct commissions (for instance, the representative of the Belarusian Social Democratic Party Hramada – a constructive and qualified woman), and was answered that it hadn’t been proposed by the district executive committee.
