Determination of Successful Election and Elected Municipal Representatives
41.1 If 25% of voters who are on the voters lists for the relevant electoral territory record their votes, the election is considered valid.
41.2 Candidates who record the most votes according to the number of vacancies in the municipality are considered to be elected.
41.3 If more than one candidate has an equal number of votes, the Territorial Election Commission, in the presence of candidates (their advocates and observers), and not later than 48 hours after election day, will cast lots between those candidates in accordance with rules defined by the Central Election Commission in order to determine who will be elected. Documents on the conduct of this casting of lots are sent to the Central Election Commission with the first copy of the Territorial Election Commission’s protocols and summary final table.
