    Voters’ Registration (Amendments and Additions) Law (Law No. 37/2007 (2014)). - Legislation on-line

    Adoption: 2014-12-06 | Date of entry into force: 2015-01-03 | SOM-2014-L-104324

    The main purpose of this 2014 Amending Law is therefore to lay the legal foundations and procedures for the new nationwide voters’ registration exercise to be conducted before for the House of Representatives and Presidential elections which were planned to be held in early 2017.
    This 2014 Law should be read with the very few provisions of the original 2007 Voters’ registration Law that have not been expressly repealed by any of the new 2014 provisions, as all the 2008 amendments which were only of a temporary “sun set” nature to facilitate the completion of the registration to be completed ((see Art. 1 of the 2008 Amendments) can be safely disregarded, anyway.
    Furthermore, although the earlier draft version of this 2014 Law included the standard article on repeals of previous provisions inconsistent with the provisions of this Law, for some unexplained reasons that article (then numbered 43) was deleted. In the circumstances, the very few provisions of the previous 2007 Voters’ registration Law which do not contradict the provisions of this new 2014 Law still remain current and, if appropriate, can be used to fill any gaps.
