Paragraph 15

The organic law amending the Election Code on the redrawing of constituencies stems from a decision issued by the Constitutional Court on 28 May 2015, which is referenced in the explanatory note of the organic law and focuses on the compatibility of the drawing of the former single-member constituencies for the majority component with the Constitution. This opinion takes note of the judgment of the Constitutional Court, which found that paragraphs 1 and 2 of Article 110 of the Election Code contradict Articles 14 and paragraph 1 of Article 28 of the Constitution and thus violate the principle of equal suffrage.
