15. The Law on Presidential Elections incorporates many of the provisions of the Law on Parliamentary Elections. Many of the shortcomings of the Law on Parliamentary Elections are to be found in the Law on Presidential Elections. However, the Law on Presidential Elections does provide for an interim level of election administration between the REC and PBs. This is a positive aspect of the Law on Presidential Elections. Issues specific to the Law on Presidential Elections that should be addressed include:
a. Failure to specify the procedures to be followed if there is only one candidate nominated or if only one candidate remains after other candidates withdraw.
b. Failure to define what is an “unsuccessful” election, which requires new elections.
c. Provisions regulating a repeated election of the President that require clarification
