Summary

General Data Protection Regulation provides several provisions that allow political parties to perform lawful processing of sensitive data based on very ambiguous terminology, such as “public interest”. These provisions allow a wide range of interpretation, creating a lot of risks, such as inconsistency between published law and practice. In addition, a very powerful technology, which current electoral law does not contemplate, makes all these issues a very important challenge to democracy. Robust legal and technical measures along with absolute transparency over data processing must be provided. It could help prevent abuses and safeguard against some threats to representative democracy.
