Par. 4 and 5 Art. 13 of the Electoral Code do not state that observers are not allowed studying documents issued by election commissions, says Uladizmir Vialichkin, observer in Brest constituency No. 2, in his reply to chair of the Central Election Commission Lidziya Yarmoshyna.

The CEC head earlier told Mr. Vialichkin in a reply to his complaint that he should study the above-mentioned provisions of the country’s election legislation. According to Uladizmir Vialichkin, numerous denials of access to documents issued by constituency election commissions across the country are discriminative, while international observers have the right to study election documents.
