III. Comments on the Text on the Draft Electoral Law 

J. Voting, counting and establishment rules

The OSCE/ODIHR final report on the 2012 parliamentary elections noted that the tabulation of results was a lengthy process that should be improved. In this regard, the OSCE/ODIHR made several recommendations for improving the process for tabulation of results, including: (1) simplifying the procedures for results tabulation; (2) increasing the number of personnel entering election results in computers at the DEC; (3) authorizing the CEC and DECs to amend results protocols to correct evident mistakes and inaccuracies; and (4) establishing clear deadlines for delivery of election results in the law.[1]
