The resident of Hlusk Ihar Kiryn filed with the Central Election Commission a complaint against the refusal of the Chairperson of the Hlusk District Election Commission Aliaksandr Belski to register him as an observer at the commission.

Ihar Kiryn had passed to the district election commission the application for his registration signed by 12 electors. Having familiarized with the application, Mr. Belski said that the surnames and data of two electors differed from all the rest and needed to be verified. However, he didn’t call the concrete day when the signatures would be verified. Meanwhile, even 10 signatures are necessary for registering Mr. Kiryn as an observer according to the law. Meanwhile, he insists that even these two signatures are valid and the official uses it just as a formal pretext for his non-registration.

By the way, it’s not the first attempt of Ihar Kiryn to get engaged in the electoral process. Earlier he hadn’t been included in the Hlusk District Election Commission to which he had been nominated as the representative of 13 electors. 3 of the electors had even lodged lawsuits, but the Hlusk District Court refused to consider them.
