Blue Coalition Submits Proposals for Electoral Code Amendments

Bulgaria’s centre-right Blue Coalition has submitted proposals for changes in the country’s electoral code that will make electronic voting possible.

The lawmakers are proposing that everyone wishing to vote electronically should be able to do so provided he files the relevant application 21 days before the date of the elections, news agency Darik News reported on Friday.

The electronic voting itself will take about ten minutes, Darik News quoted MPs from the Blue Coalition as saying.

The lawmakers have suggested to model Bulgaria’s electronic voting system on that developed by Estonia, state-run Bulgarian National Television (BNT) reported on Friday. It would allow disabled and people living abroad to take part in the election process as well, BNT cited MP Vanyo Sharkov as saying.
