Recommendation:
It is necessary to reconsider the system of forming precinct electoral commissions and their activities, eliminating political and other dependencies, simultaneously clarifying responsibilities. It is preferable that PECs be formed on the principles of TECs on the basis of standards defined by law and be appointed by the CEC. Such a mechanism will contribute to improving the professional quality of commissions and the assurance of integrated application of CEC guidelines
