VII. Candidate registration

Article 134(3) addresses a refusal of registration for political parties and states that denial of registration is appealable to the Supreme Administrative Court pursuant to the procedures of Article 58. The deadline for appeal stated in Article 58 is three days. Similar provisions are stated in Article 141 concerning a decision denying the registration of a coalition for the elections. Similar provisions are stated in Article 256 concerning a decision denying the registration of an independent candidate.
