The Svetlahorsk District Executive Committee included in the precinct election commissions (PECs) of the district only 2 out of the 22 representatives of democratic forces. No representatives of the Belarusian Popular Front were included because the minutes about their nomination to the commissions allegedly contained a mistake.

The authorities included in the commissions 2 out of 10 nominees of the Belarusian Leftist Party Fair World. In particular, the pensioner Iryna Sarychava was included in the Maladziozhny PEC #12 and the entrepreneur Siarhei Zavaratsen was included in the Lamanousauski PEC #29. The former covers the old blocks inhabited by pensioners and the latter is situated on the town outskirts. By the way, all nominees of Fair World were also nominated to the commissions by collection of signatures of electors.

9 other democratic activists were nominated to the PECs by collecting signatures as well, and weren’t included in them either.
