The law also stipulates dismissal for those people who know that an employee of a state-owned enterprise uses the resources of the public company for electoral purposes but has not taken any action to prevent this from happening.

The managers will also be fined from 50,000 to 150,000 Dinars. Those changes are said to be made in line with OSCE and ODIHR to improve the election process in the country.
