Opposition clashes with socialists on electoral reform; Requires new judicial body

20/02/2020 19:11

The extra-parliamentary opposition DP proposed today the dissolution of the electoral college and the creation of a new 15-member judiciary body, marking the first strong clash with the socialists in the collective electoral reform political table.

The divisions were deepened by the opposition’s demand for a four-year exemption from vetting of election judges, which was seen as a breakdown of the justice reform by the SP.

The Socialists, however, left open the door to compromise. In addition to objections, the electoral reform political group has found consensus on the opposition’s proposal for signalers and the role of the police in maintaining order outside polling stations.
