The restriction for the opening of up to 35 electoral sections will be abolished for EU member-states but it will remain valid for the rest of the world, decided deputies in the legal commission who discussed at first reading the 12 draft bills for amendments to the Electoral Code. 17 days remain until the presidential elections. GERB’s proposal for the Central Election Commission (CEC) to allow, when necessary, voting, including on election day itself, in electoral sections abroad with more than one ballot box was also adopted.
Two proposals regarding the “I do not support anyone” square were adopted. The first is GERB’s proposal that this type of vote be considered valid in all types of elections.
The second proposal was submitted by GERB, the Reformist Bloc and the Patriotic Front after their meeting with PM Borisov in order to heal the cracks in the coalition.
