At the beginning of the previous week Viktar Malochka, a former candidate for the Parliament at Salihorsk city election constituency #68, filed a complaint to the Salihorsk District Prosecutor's Office and the Salihorsk City Election Commission, demanding to re-calculate the ballots at precinct #15 and compare this number with the list of electors. A similar complaint was also filed by his electioneering agent Aliaksandr Malochka.

According to the applicants, the election commission overstated the number of the people who voted at the precinct on 23 September by 401 people. That day Aliaksandr Malochka and his electioneering agent were present at the polling station and calculated the electors.

According to an answer of the prosecutor of the Salihorsk district V. Belchyn, a special check-up was conducted on these facts, which included “examination of documents, questioning of observers and members of precinct election commission #15”. Predictably enough, nothing wrong was found with the results of the voting and no measures were taken. The constituency election commission found the appeals groundless too.
