Paragraph 67

This problem of disenfranchisement, limited to local elections, has not been solved for military personnel on active duty. It has been addressed in Article 9.2 for students; it appears now that a student who has a temporary residence, different from the domicile, will be entitled to vote “in the period of the residence validity, […] in the locality in which he/she has his/her residence.” Such a rule was anticipated by a CEC decision during the 2005 parliamentary elections: voting of students became politically charged during the pre-election period. The CEC addressed the issue on 8 February 2005 by permitting full time students to vote at their places of temporary residence (place of study), even if not registered, and disseminated its decision through state media.[22]
