Article 48(3) stipulates that the order in which electoral subjects appear on a ballot is determined by the sequence of their registration by the respective election commissions. In order to avoid any confusion and possible manipulation attempts as reported during the 2007 local elections, the order in which candidates/parties are listed on a ballot should be determined by drawing of lots and the procedures should be laid out in the Law or a CEC regulation.
