Recommendation:
The right to invite international NGOs should be provided not only to state agencies but also to NGOs. It will eliminate demonstrations of arbitrariness by the CEC and other competent agencies sending invitations and will contribute to enhancing the quality of public oversight, strengthening cooperation with professional observation organizations. The CEC can reject the registration of an international observation organization only if the organization does not meet the specific standards prescribed by law.
