"Most election laws... allow for the supreme electoral administrative body, usually the Central Election Commission ("the CEC"), to issue instructions to further clarify issues related to the election process. However, electoral legislation should require that such instructions are directly based on provisions in the electoral legislation. The role of the CEC in connection with the issuing of detailed instructions should be clearly understood. The role of the CEC is not to act as a substitute legislator, but to respond to occurring needs for clarification by way of interpreting and supplementing the election regulations. Election legislation should create a balance that allows for the necessary flexibility of the CEC to respond to obvious needs, but yet not undermine the principle of legislative control over the election legislation."
