The new Central Election Commission was appointed today by a decree issued by President Rumen Radev. Kamelia Neykova chairs the new commission.

There are 62 days left until the early general elections on July 11. According to the Electoral Code, consultations on the composition of the district election commissions must take place no later than 57 days before the election day. Meanwhile, the Central Election Commission must define the conditions for the formation of polling stations abroad, including the conditions and procedure for voting abroad.

More polling stations will open abroad for the July 11 elections as compared to the previous general elections, after the 45th National Assembly adopted amendments to the Electoral Code, lifting the limit of 35 polling stations for non-EU countries, notes the reporter of the Bulgarian National Radio Tsvetelina Stoyanova.
