President Kiska approves new election rules
18 Jun 2014 Flash News
THE NEW election codes passed by parliament in late May will become effective as of next year now that President Andrej Kiska has signed the bill into law, the President’s Office informed on its website on June 18.
It is the first law that Kiska signed as president.
The new election law is replacing six laws that set out the rules for different kinds of elections in Slovakia, with the declared aim of unifying the rules for elections and to make the running and financing of political campaigns more transparent. The new rules include the introduction of an independent body to oversee party financing and campaigning, new limits on campaign spending and an equal moratorium for all elections taking place in Slovakia.
The new election law is to become effective only in 2015, meaning that the municipal elections this autumn will not be subject to stricter campaign finance rules and limits on campaign spending.
