57. Article 23 of the law requires the body responsible for maintaining the voter list to issue “certificates of suffrage”. It would appear that these are required by those seeking inclusion on a candidate list (Article 44) but not by voters on polling day. However, Article 72a requires “certificates of suffrage” for persons voting by mobile ballot box. Thus, it is not clear what other purposes are intended for these certificates. The OSCE/ODIHR and the Venice Commission recommend that the law be amended to clearly state the purposes, when needed, and procedures for issuing, obtaining, and surrendering to election administration authorities a “certificate of suffrage”.
