Bulgaria’s MPs have adopted amendments to this country’s Electoral Code. The composition of the Central Election Commission (CEC) is reduced from 20 to 15 people. According to the new amendments, the members of the Central Election Commission will be appointed by Bulgaria’s President upon a proposal of the political parties and coalitions represented at the National Assembly. 

The political parties will nominate the Central Election Commission’s chairperson, deputy chairperson and secretary, but the entire commission will be appointed by a Presidential decree, following public consultations and a procedure determined by this country’s head of state. Parties and coalitions with MEPs will no longer have representatives at the Central Election Commission, if they are not represented in Bulgaria’s Parliament.

Bulgaria’s Parliament approved 100% machine voting in polling stations with more than 300 voters.

The MPs approved a video surveillance in election commissions when ballots are counted and tally sheets are filled in. The process will be broadcast online.
