"The legal framework should ensure that the method of selecting election commission members is impartial. Additionally, it is suggested the members’ terms be staggered to provide continuity in the work of successive commissions. The method of selecting commission members should be open and transparent. The legal framework should also specify the grounds and process for removal of a member. The law should contain provision designed to foster the independence and impartiality of members, including provision protecting members from arbitrary removal and providing immunity in connection with the performance of legal duties. The law should also specify the rights of reach member of the commission, including the right to receive timely and adequate notice of meetings, the right of access to all commission documents, and the right to participate in all commission meetings."
