An amendment to Article 105.2 changes the deadline for requests for mobile voting from 2 days before election day to “12 hours before”. Although mobile voting increases the opportunities for voting, it can also increase the possibilities for fraud since the mobile ballot box is not contained in a controlled voting environment. Past election observation reports indicate that there is already a significant level of mobile voting. In the 2005 repeat parliamentary elections, where voting occurred in only ten constituencies, more than 3.1 per cent of the votes were cast by mobile voting. There has been no indication that the current deadline of 2 days is insufficient. Implementation of this amendment should be observed closely in the next elections.
