Cheslau Huzouski, an observer from the Party of the Left "Fair World", has sent complaints to the Central Election Commission and the Brest Regional Election Commission, as well as to the Baranavičy Interdistrict Prosecutor’s Office to report fraud and falsification of documents by the chair of the city territorial election commission Tamara Shukala.
