The Bulgarian Parliament has unanimously adopted at first reading changes to the country's Electoral Code introduced by the "There is such a people" (ITN) party.
The changes include removing the restriction on the opening of polling stations in non-EU countries, the creation of a new "Abroad" constituency, machine-only voting and a new Central Election Commission. The number of members of the new CEC will have to be reduced to 15 and party quotas will be abolished, BNR reported.
At first reading, the introduction of experimental remote electronic voting was agreed to take place in the presidential elections in the autumn.
