Paragraph 54

F. Collection of signatures for presidential candidacy

The validity of all signatures should be checked up until the point that it is established that there are sufficient valid signatures or that there are no more signatures to check.[1] The OSCE/ODIHR and the Venice Commission previously recommended that the procedure for verification of support signatures be revised; taking into consideration international good practice and the benefits of requiring a uniform procedure for all election commissions that can be evaluated objectively by candidates and observers. This recommendation remains unaddressed.
