Paragraph 76

Article 35.5 provides for the possibility to cancel referendum results if such violations of the law have taken place that might have affected the referendum results “while in the course of preparation and holding of referendum”. Such provision should not be understood as applying only to violations during the final stages of the process. Moreover, in conformity with the principle of proportionality, milder sanctions should be provided for in case the violations of the law did not affect the results.
