Warning to Parties: Maintain Voter Privacy

The Authority for Law, Technology and Information in the Justice Ministry has issued a warning to parties to maintain voter privacy in advance of the upcoming elections. The warning pertains to both the records kept by the parties and use made of those records.

Parties get a voter registry, maintained by the Ministry of the interior, with demographic information regarding each citizen. Some parties have used the information in illegal ways, such as by entering the information into their own computer system rather than returning it as is.
