The Hrodna Region Court, headed by Aliaksandr Hrynkevich, predictably declined the review complaints of the Hrodna city organization of the Belarusian Popular Front and the Hrodna regional organization of the Belarusian Social Democratic Hramada against the non-inclusion of their representatives in the precinct election commissions of Hrodna.

Bear in mind that the BPF had nominated to these commissions 20 representatives, and the BSDH – 17. However, the authorities included in the commissions just 1 representative of the BSDH and no representatives of the BPF.

The lawsuits to the Leninski and the Kastrychnitski district courts of Hrodna were fruitless and the appropriate rulings of the Leninski and the Kastrychnitski district executive committees that had been adopted with violations of legislation were found lawful.

Having received answers from the regional court, the party structures have filed review complaints with the Supreme Court and are waiting for an answer. They have no illusions about the results of the complaints and consider them as a means to show the absence of the independent judiciary in the country.
