Meeting for the formation of Zhodina district election commission

A general meeting of the Presidium of Zhodzina City Council of Deputies and Zhodzina executive Committee was held on December 26 to form the district election commission and approve the candidates for the town election commission for the upcoming local councils elections.

According to human rights activist Ales Lapitski, who was delegated to the meeting, it revealed violations of democratic procedures in nominating and approving the nominations for the town commission. As a result, the commission is once again composed of representatives of the executive branch, completely dependent and subordinate to the executive committee, loyal to the authorities, as well as representatives of pro-governmental NGOs and political parties: The Republican Youth Union, "Belaya Rus", the Belarusian Union of Journalists, the Red Cross, the Communist Party, the trade union of education institutions.
