A resident of Biaroza Tamara Shchapiotkina appealed to the CEC, pointing that the meeting of the Biaroza District Executive Committee on establishment of precinct election commissions did not comply with the principle of openness and transparency, guaranteed by Article 13, Part 1 of the Electoral Code. She also mentions that according to Art. Of the Law "On local government and self-government in the Republic of Belarus" the local administration is carried out including the principle of transparency.

The matters is that though T. Shchapiotkina attended the February 5 meeting on establishment of the PECs as a representative group of citizens who nominated her to one of the commissions, she didn't manage to find out whther she was included in the PEC or not.
