Paragraph 37

A number of issues raised in previous opinions of the Venice Commission and the OSCE/ODIHR, as well as in election observation reports, are still to be considered, through the amendment of provisions of the Electoral Code that apply to all elections, including presidential. This includes, in particular, rules on signature collection and verification, financing of electoral campaigns, the possibility of candidate de-registration as a sanction, and the restrictions, in substance or in time, on the right to campaign and on freedom of expression.
