New/Unique in this Election:  

The Civil Servants Election and Recall Act was amended in May 2023 to prohibit individuals from running for public office if they have been convicted of certain crimes, including money laundering, fraud, and national security offenses. The amendments also increase barriers for political parties to nominate candidates who have been convicted of these crimes. In July 2023, the Constitutional Court upheld an amendment to Article 146 of the Criminal Code which punishes individuals who changed their household registrations to vote in places where they did not live, work or study.
