The Election Code still contains a requirement for a minimum turnout for the election to be valid (Art. 86.1, Art. 87, 4, Art. 105.3, Art. 105.4, Art. 105.5, Art. 123.1). Although a new article on the determination of the total number of voters was introduced in the Election Code (Art. 91), the turnout rates remain arbitrary without the existence of accurate voter registration. Finally, the requirement might provoke attempts to fraudulently inflate turnout figures. Indeed, turnout figures seemed to have been inflated in a number of districts in recent elections, according to election observers.
