If in some districts or polling stations the elections were declared invalid or null, the Central Elections Commission shall hold, within a 2-weeks term, repeated ballot based on the same electoral lists, for the same candidacies and with the same electoral councils and committees.
Electoral competitors guilty of fraud shall be excluded from the ballot papers, and the electoral councils and committees that have committed such frauds, shall be replaced.
Repeated ballot shall be considered valid if it is attended by at least 1/3 of the total number of persons registered in the electoral lists.
