On 28 September, 2 p.m. Biaroza pro-democratic activists Tamara Shchapiotkina and Siarzhuk Rusetski received a letter from local executive authorities, saying that the time and place of meeting for the formation of election commissions could be found at the town’s official web-site. However, the meeting had been held a few hours before, at 8.30 a.m.

The activists say this is a purposeful violation of the Electoral Code, since they have addressed the local authorities in advance with a demand to invite them to the meeting.
