SUBSTANCE	
Equality	before	the	law	/	legal	protection	of	the	law	–	article	3	
Equal	protection		

Equality presupposes that the law protects everyone without discrimination (APDH, para
146). Failure to place political candidates in an election on equal footing for instance through
an imbalance in the composition of the electoral body amounts to a violation of the right to
equal protection (APDH, paras 149-151).
