PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenian Constitutional Court turned down the appeal of 28 MPs from Prosperous Armenia and ARF Dashnaktutyun to rule the point of the Armenian electoral code banning publication of voter lists as unconstitutional.
Constitutional Court conditioned its decision by a view voiced by the Venice Commission in the stage of drafting the Electoral Code. The latter states that the voter lists publication violates the secret ballot principle.
The proposal on voter lists release was put forth by the inter-party headquarters consisting of Prosperous Armenia, ARF Dashnaktutyun and Armenian National Congress (ANC). The initiative was also backed by Heritage opposition party.
