The Constitutional Court has rejected the main opposition CHP appeal for the cancellation of the legislative package that stipulates changes in Turkey’s electoral laws, an amendment that the CHP says casts a shadow over election security.
The main opposition had appealed to the top court after parliament passed the law amending several articles in election and political party laws, arguing that the new procedures would jeopardize election security.
The CHP had demanded the cancellation of articles that allow the Supreme Board of Elections to change the location of ballot boxes in a number of constituencies, as well as to transfer or unite ballot boxes in certain constituencies deemed to be at risk of safety problems.
The Board also announced on May 28 that the ballot boxes of 144,000 voters in total have been change, in a total of 19 provinces in Turkey’s southeast.
