On Thursday, January 7, the Constitutional Court (MK) is expected to hold the first electoral dispute trials as a result of the 2015 simultaneous regional elections.

That being said, the court would still be overwhelmed by the hundreds of lawsuits, for by law the MK only has 45 working days to reach their final decision on the aforementioned lawsuits.To subscribe please click here
