Salihorsk PEC No. 24 overestimates turnout by four hundred people
Observer of the United Civil Party Viktar Malochka stated about the overestimation of the turnout at polling station No. 24 in Salihorsk by almost 400 electors.
“I had learned working with the numbers while I was lieutenant colonel working in the economic crime department. There is no discrepancy in the number of voters during the early voting. However, dring the election day I counted just 808 people, whereas the commission's number is 1,190. I stayed at the polling station whole day, counting every elector,” says Viktar Malochka. “It's quite interesting that the number of electors was also counted by a girl, who seemed to have been nominated by the authorities. When she discovered that large discrepancy, she got scared and said that she didn't want to know anything and would no longer engage in it all, and ran away without waiting for the posting of the protocol of voting.”
After the announcement of the official results Mr. Malochka warned members of the PEC about the considerable mismatch and warned them he would have to address the prosecutor's office on this issue. However, he doesn't believe the prosecutor's office will do anything about it. PEC No. 24 is headed by the notorious head of the first mine of the open JSC “Belaruśkali” Aliaksandr Harbachou, with whom the prosecutor's office has already held a prophylactic talk regarding his public statement about the intention to control the turnout of workers of “Belaruśkali” at the elections.
