BPF activists appeal ban on election commission membership in Sluck and Salihorsk

The Minsk regional office of the Party of the Belarusian Popular Front and the Minsk regional branch of the public association BPF "Adradžennie" have sent complaints to the courts of Sluck and Salihorsk districts to challenge refusals to include their representatives in local precinct election commissions.

In Sluck, the Belarusian Popular Front party and the public organization nominated 15 members to local precinct election commissions. Another two representatives were delegated to the election commissions of Salihorsk. The BPF activists believe that the bans are unjustified and call for their reversal.

Earlier, similar complaints were filed in the courts of the five districts of Minsk.
