Paragraph 40

An innovation in this chapter is the precisely defined procedure of checking the authenticity of supporting signatures (Article 42.2). The verification of a mere percentage of the signatures opens however the door to manipulations, since a big number of falsified signatures may be introduced in the sample. At any rate, every list obtaining a sufficient number of valid signatures, whatever the number of invalid ones, should be registered, which implies the verification of as many signatures as necessary to reach this number.
