Krychau activists of the United Civil Party and the NGO BPF Adradzhenne appeal the non-inclusion of their representatives in the precinct election commissions at the Krychau District Court.

BPF Adradzhenne nominated to the PECs Mikalai Herdzei, Nadzeya Ivanova and Uladzimir Kudrautsau, and the UCP – Mikalai Fiadoranka and Tatsiana Liaiputsina.

’None of them were included. The PECs were formed at the sitting of the Krychau District Executive Committee on 3 November. The candidacies proposed for the commissions weren’t discussed. There are more candidates than places in some commissions as a result the opposition representatives weren’t included in them. I suspect that the number of nominees was intentionally increased by the authorities to have a good excuse for leaving the oppositionists outside the PECs,’ commented the editor of the Volny Horad newspaper Siarhei Niarouny.
