116. The previous Venice Commission-ODIHR Opinion noted that under Article 79 (2) of the Draft Code the organiser of a pre-election rally is responsible for keeping order and commented that this provision could restrict the right to assemble and conduct meetings, since it might be difficult to keep malevolent persons away. The Opinion recommended that responsibility for keeping order should mainly be the duty of the police, and that recommendation is now contained in the Code, which specifies in the corresponding article (80 ) that the Ministry of Internal Affairs is responsible for keeping order during campaign rallies.
