Transparency of the Process and Confidence of the Voters
Citizens’ mistrust in the election process is growing year by year. In order to reinstate the citizens’ confidence in the electoral process and in institutions implementing the elections, it is vital to improve transparency and openness of the entire electoral process. The citizens’ confidence might be reinstated if competent institutions, above all the Republic Electoral Commission, timely published all data relevant to the electoral process. Besides, the way in which institutions act upon citizens’ reports on irregularities during the elections should be improved. Serious deficiencies in the voters’ register, its administration and updates significantly affect the confidence of citizens in the electoral process.
