The quantity and the quality of the control on the elections of political institutions can play an important role on establishing the principle of electoral equality. The organ responsible for controlling elections can ensure the principle of equality in electoral laws by supervising on the functions of electoral officers and by supervising on the precise enforcement of electoral laws. Accordingly, as one of the institutions enforcing electoral laws, it can secure the principle of equality before the electoral laws. Therefore, it is necessary to determine the appropriate mechanisms for supervising the enforcement of the electoral laws and to determine the punishment for acts which are contrary to electoral laws in order to ensure the realisation of principle of equality in electoral laws. Realisation of the principle of equality before the electoral laws requires neutrality of electoral supervisors. Therefore, criterion of the control over elections must be regulated and the aforesaid legal regulations must clearly be determined.
