Election commissions refuse to register Mikalai Statkevich's initiative group
Alyaksei Haurutsikau, the political prisoner's party member in the Belarusian Social Democratic Party "People's Assembly", has informed about it.
Vitsebsk October District election commission #20 was the first to have refused to register Mikalai Statkevich's initiative group.
Observer Anatol Rodzik, member of the party of the left "Fair World", says that there were a number of violations in the documents presented by Statkevich's group. In particular, the Election Code does not allow convicts and prisoners serving their sentences to take part in elections.
