Abstract
The Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) has confirmed the conclusion of the chamber judgment in the case Magyar Kétfarkú Kutya Párt v. Hungary (23 January 2018, see IRIS 2018-3/2). The case concerns the use and promotion by a political party of a mobile application (“app”) which allowed voters to anonymously share photographs of their ballot papers. The Grand Chamber found that a fine for distributing the app had violated the political party’s right to freedom of expression, because the interference with the applicant’s right was not ‘prescribed by law’. It emphasized that restrictions on the freedom of expression of political parties in the context of an election or a referendum call for rigorous supervision from the scope of Article 10 of the European Convention of Human Rights (ECHR).
