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.
