Background. In the Russian Federation and other CIS countries the central authority authorized to conduct and organize elections on a national scale is the Central Election Commission. Taking into account the overall goals and objectives of this body an analysis of the legislation of the CIS countries on the subject matter can be used to improve the legal status of the Central Election Commission of Russia. The research objective is to bring out basic models for determining the constitutional and legal status of the central electoral body in the CIS countries and to analyze its contents.
Materials and methods. The research tasks were implemented through analyzing the existing legislation, which defines the status of central electoral bodies in the CIS countries. The research methodology included legal regulation analysis, formal legal and comparative legal methods.
Results. The author has obtained models that consolidate the constitutional and legal status of central electoral authorities in the CIS countries, as well as the characteristics of each of the models.
Conclusions. It is emphasized that central electoral authorities in the CIS countries are designated as state bodies with public authority, which allows us to characterize them as public authority carriers not included in the overall system of separation of powers and being a body sui generis.
