III. DISCUSSION OF THE DRAFT NATIONAL ELECTIONS LAW AND THE DRAFT ELECTION COMMISSIONS LAW
E. Presidential Candidacy Rights
The term of the president has been extended to six years. The draft law stipulates that the president cannot be elected for two consecutive terms twice (Article 48.2). This contradicts the 2010 Constitution, which stipulates that “One and the same person may not be elected President twice” (art. 61.2). The Venice Commission and OSCE/ODIHR therefore recommend that this provision be brought in conformity with the Constitution.
