Paragraph 39

The provisions of this chapter (Articles 40-42) are quite acceptable by recognised standards.  In 41.5, it would be proper to require a statement of the birth date, identity number and address of the candidates in addition to their name.  As regards the information to be provided on the candidates and the supporters, it would be desirable to require the election commissions to give the persons responsible for the lists a limited opportunity to remedy defects in relation to the signatures (i.e. to correct obvious errors or omissions, but not to collect substitute signatures) without resorting to an appeal.
