THE INTERIOR Ministry has introduced a draft Election Code to unify various measures applying to the five existing types of election. But the overall change will be minor, the Sme daily reported.

Originally, the ministry aspired to unify the dates of some elections, and to increase the number of electoral districts. But none of these measures was included in the current draft. The only real change for voters will be that they can only make their choices by circling the names of the candidates they favour.

The Election Code should also change the rules for parties contesting elections. They would no longer have to observe a moratorium on campaigning, and there would be no spending limits. However, every party would have to state in advance how much money it planned to spend. The money would then be deposited in a special bank account, so as to allow public scrutiny of its use.
