Bulgarian Electoral Commission Submits Personal Data Fraud Complaints
Bulgaria's Central Electoral Commission (CEC) has sent 357 complaints and signals for misuse of personal data in the registration of candidates for the European Elections.
The complaints have been sent to the Commission for Personal Data Protection, while a further 20 signals have been sent to the Prosecution, Dariknews reports.
Earlier this month, it became evident that a number of parties had used personal data of citizens to register them into the necessary signatures list, without their knowledge. Names and civil numbers of some prominent figures, including the Ombudsman, appeared on the lists.
The Commission for Personal Data Protection has ordered all parties with signals against them to immediately erase the signatures and data of those with complaints. However, CEC announced that it would not have time to investigate the cases and to ban parties from running for the European Elections on May 25.
Citizens can check whether their personal data appears on any registration lists in CEC's website.
