Slutsk: constituency commission ignores election observer
Vital Amialkovich, an observer from the Belarusian
Helsinki Committee, asks the head of the Central Election Commission to explain
whether the action of the Law “On applications of citizens and juridical
bodies” spreads on activities of election commissions.
“On 12 July I addressed the election commission of election constituency #67 in Slutsk with the request to be informed about the dates, time and places of sittings of the commission,” writes Vital Amialkovich in his inquiry to the CEC head Lidziya Yarmoshyna. “In this very statement I asked to inform me about the commission's decision in the written form”.
Two weeks after it the secretary of the constituency commission Yury Skryhan informed the observer that the action of the Law “On applications of citizens and juridical bodies” doesn't spread on activities of election commissions, that's why the commission had the right not to give any answer at all.
Though several days after it Vital Amialkovich received an answer from the commission, he decided to ask the head of the Central Election Commission which laws regulate the terms and the order of consideration of applications which don't contain information about violations of the electoral legislation.
