Monitoring: PACE lists actions it expects from Council of Europe member states

A Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) report  approved today lists actions it expects from fourteen member states in order to meet their Council of Europe obligations and commitments, and provides a comparative analysis of how eleven others are doing according to assessments from different parts of the Organisation made over the last three years.
 
The fourteen countries dealt with in the annual report by PACE‚Äôs Monitoring Committee are Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, Moldova, Montenegro, Russia, Serbia and Ukraine (subject to the Assembly‚Äôs monitoring procedure) and Bulgaria, Monaco, ‚Äúthe former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia‚ÄĚ and Turkey (in ‚Äúpost-monitoring dialogue‚ÄĚ with the Assembly).
 
The eleven states not subject to monitoring which are assessed in detail ‚Äď the third and final group to be assessed under a three-year cycle of reporting ‚Äď are Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, San Marino, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
 
Making an overall assessment of the situation in its resolution, based on a report by Dick Marty (Switzerland, ALDE), the Assembly points to ‚Äúserious shortcomings in electoral processes‚ÄĚ, as well as a lack of parliamentary dialogue and serious constitutional problems that prevent further progress.
 
Adopted resolution

Addendum: assessments of the eleven states not subject to monitoring
