The OSCE/ODIHR and the Venice Commission had previously expressed concern about a provision in the existing law that could be applied to allow a political party to “eliminate” or re-order a candidate on a list after the list had been registered. In a positive development, this provision is not found in the draft law. However, the draft law retains in Article 59.1.2, the provision which allows a political party to remove a nominated candidate from a list up until 15 days before the election. The Venice Commission and the OSCE/ODIHR again recommend that this provision be carefully considered.
