Paragraph 22

22. The Election Code establishes that 50,000 signatures of voters are necessary for candidates to run for the presidential election, as well as for parties not represented in Parliament to run for parliamentary elections or local elections. This number is excessive. It is recommended that the number of signatures does not exceed 1% of the electorate within the respective electoral unit for which the elections are held.[11]
