The Bulgarian Constitutional Court requested from the Central Election Commission (CEC) the election files after it decided to consider a claim challenging the validity of the presidential vote.

The claim was filed by 71 MPs of the Bulgarian Socialist Party, the Movement for Rights and Freedoms and far-right party Ataka.

The Court requested information from the Civil Registration and Administrative Services and the Interior Ministry, as well, bussiness daily Dnevnik (www.dnevnik.bg) said.

The Court asked CEC to submit within three days a sample of presidential and local elections ballots on order to decide on the legitimacy of complaints that the ballots did not meet the non-transparency requirements.

The Court will also seek further information about how the lists of people who were banned from taking part in the elections were compiled. Interested parties have seven days to submit relevant information with the court.
