The group for the organization of the referendum was registered in violation of the procedure for the initiation of decision making under Law 239, article 8 (stages of ensuring transparency), article 9 (terms) on the grounds that stakeholders must be notified about the initiation of decision making 15 days before the date of examination and adoption of the decision. Infringement of the procedure of announcement of the meeting of the Central Electoral Commission, which under the Electoral Code article 25 (2) (CEC meetings) must occur 48 hours before the meeting.
