Democratic activists were not included in the district election commissions, which were, according to local authorities, formed with "the most energetic and capable members". Meanwhile, Orsha representatives of the UCP (Henadz Ananyeu) and the Left Party "Fair World" (Vasil Kabacheusku) were not included in the district election commission. It were just these party members who were tossed out of 16 nominees.

"Fair World" representative Anatol Prakapenka attempted to become member of Polatsk district election commission. However, he did not succeed, being one of the two nominees rejected out of the total 15 people.

Opposition party members were not nominated to Navapolatsk town election commission, and everyone was included there by a "general list": 13 applications were received, and all 13 applicants become members of this commission. Five of them are representatives of NGOs, such as “Belaya Rus", the Republican Youth Union, the Federation of Trade Unions of Belarus, and the Belarusian Veterans’ Association.
