Article 3 of Protocol 11 does not prescribe any particular constitutional structure, electoral system or method of voting2: there are numerous ways of organising and running electoral systems and it is for each contracting state to decide for itself which to adopt3. The content of the obligation on states to hold free elections varies in accordance with the historical and political factors specific to each state, and any electoral legislation must therefore be assessed in the light of the political evolution of the country concerned4. Features which would be unacceptable in the context of one system may be justified
