KYRGYZ REPUBLIC - Assistance in the electoral field
14/12/2018 - 14/12/2018
Bishkek – In the framework of the project “Support to Strengthening Democracy through Electoral Reform in the Kyrgyz Republic” a round table on the case-law on electoral disputes was held on 14 December 2018.
The Round table was a continuation of the work already done in the field of electoral dispute resolution within the project. After a thorough consultation with the judges, the Venice Commission’s expert drew a comprehensive analysis of judicial case materials of election related complaints. The analysis also included the results of the interviews held with the judges earlier, as well as a set of recommendations on how to further improve the legislation in the field. The Round table participants further discussed the overview and exchange views on the issue in order to finalise the work started during the summer 2018.
The project “Support to Strengthening Democracy through Electoral Reform in the Kyrgyz Republic” is implemented by the Venice Commission and co-funded by the European Union and the Council of Europe.
