Activists of the civil campaign Citizen started going round the precinct election commissions in Minsk. They plan to remind each of the 9,000 members of these commissions about the criminal responsibility for incorrect counting of votes and other violations of the electoral legislation. 

Article 192 of the Criminal Code of the Republic of Belarus envisages up to 5 years of imprisonment for such violations, says the improvised summon. 

The youth call on the members of the precinct election commissions to come to the local police departments with their passports voluntarily on 20 December if they would violate this article.
