In the electoral documents will now be recorded that the observers can watch the counting of the ballots "in conditions that allow see aglyadnasts counting. " All other offers for various reasons rejected.
The co-chairs of the campaign "For Fair Elections 2010" Viktor Kornienko andSergei Kalyakin an opportunity at the beginning of the meeting to justify their proposals. And they related to greater representation of political parties in electoral commissions, equal rights for all presidential candidates during the campaign, observers unimpeded opportunity to watch the counting of ballots and other.
However, the initiator of the changes was denied from a variety of causes. They say that the adoption of such proposals exceeds the authority of the CEC or the law does not make sense to overload too much detail.
The only thing that could achieve activists — in electoral documents will now be recorded that the observers can watch the counting of the ballots "in conditions that allow to see aglyadnasts counting." Also accepted a proposal from the Belarusian Helsinki Committee. Now the Republican public entity is permitted to send observers in the commission of any level, regardless of whether the organization is in the relevant region registered its structure.
CEC Chairman Lidiya Yarmoshyna in an interview with reporters after the meeting stated that, although disgruntled and left, still made today a lot:
'Introduction of two significant changes to the decisions of the Central Election Commission, governing the public. First, the authority of the observers are in full compliance with the Convention on free and fair elections for the CIS countries. Second, a simplified procedure for sending observers to those associations that monitor elections, but nevertheless do not have the broad structures. "
Co-chair of the campaign "For Fair Elections 2010" Viktor Kornienko with this assessment does not agree:
"There is no emphasis on the spirit of the law, and in his letter. Yes, and very often the facts are distorted. There is a kind of "gag", which is also issued for legally verified statement. And if we turn to the content of today's meeting, we clearly see that the CEC is not going to change anything. It deals only with imitation. And what a lot of examples. "
Another co-chair, Sergei Kalyakin, also dissatisfied with the decisions of the Central Election Commission:
"How did not know of any observers or voters this election results, so they will not know the future. And today, the CEC has become the cover of opportunities for fraud. We have appealed to the Commission to enable it to show that everything is transparent, and the commission will be a hindrance to falsify the election results. But today we got a solution that gives the green light rigging. "
A presidential candidate Nyaklyayeu said, speaking at the meeting that "the Central Election Commission today took another big step for the non-recognition of the results of these elections."
