Paragraph 32

 In order to alleviate the potential problem of individuals voting in place of voters abroad and registered in the voters’ lists,  Article 9 par.2 (e) provides that “on consular registry” shall be marked for a person abroad or “is abroad” where such a person is abroad but not on a consular registry. In practice however, the accuracy of the voters’ list in this respect was apparently not sufficient. Thus, it is recommended that the Election Code provide better safeguards against voting in place of voters abroad and that the CEC should ensure that the appropriate notations are made on the voters’ list.
