Paragraph 20

The amended Electoral Code does not regulate separately the voting rights of members of the military, detained persons, and citizens abroad. The new Article 10 regulates the procedures for inclusion of such persons in voters’ lists. The new Article 56 (5) refers to the general provisions regulating the voting procedures that are to be applied also to military servicemen, the persons registered in Diplomatic and Consular Representations, as well as persons being in detention or under arrest. Even though normal voting procedures can be used in those instances, it should be stressed that under those circumstances supervision over the enforcement of the Electoral Code should be exercised with special care. Persons under detention or military servicemen are especially prone to being manipulated to vote in a certain way.
