As said by Yury Masiuk, main specialist of the staff department of Mahiliou oblast executive committee, the majority of the nominees are presented by the pro-governmental ‘state NGO’ Belarusian Republican Youth Union (BRSM) and the veteran association. There are also nominees from political parties and those who were nominated by collection of citizens’ signatures. It is quite interesting to see, who of the nominees will be included in the electoral commissions by Mahiliou oblast authorities.

According to the human rights activist Barys Bukhel, at present the electoral campaign is going on without any violations. The district electoral commission works in the building of Mahiliou OEC and accepts nomination protocols from political parties and the collected signatures from the private individuals who want to participate in the work of the electoral commissions. This information is put into a special register.

Bear in mind that the state of nomination of representatives to district electoral commission ends at 5 p.m. on 11 July. The information about the composition of the electoral commission must be made accessible to public not later than 14 July.
