One of the parliamentary groups used a general reference to the Charter to criticise the legislative action of the ruling party in general and, in particular, some amendments in the Elections Code (Изборен кодекс). It was said that the Charter, among others, laid minimum standards on fundamental rights, which recent legislation did not comply with. No particular amendments were cited in specific relation with the Charter.
