The election officials of Mahiliou-based polling station No. 45 have overstated the number of early voters, local observers report.

According to the observers registered in constituency No. 87, only six persons came to the polling station on the first day of the early voting campaign. However, the official record says there were 16 voters. The situation was repeated on the following day, when 14 ballots were cast, while the election officials claim there were 98 of them.

The members of the election commission chaired by Sviatlana Yakimenka behave extremely boldly and fear nothing, says observer Aliaksei Yauhenau. “I am going to lodge a complaint with the prosecuting authorities and the constituency election commission,” says Aliaksei Yauhenau.
