Equally unusual are two provisions, as amended on 23 December 2005, which provide that:
Article 106.7: “If a Member of the Parliament who resigns, was elected through the party list of a party participating independently in the elections, the seat of such MP shall be occupied by the candidate for Parliament named next in the same list within a period of 1 month, […]. If there is no other candidate named in the party list, this mandate of MP shall be deemed cancelled.”
Article 106.9: “In the case of the withdrawal of a Member of Parliament elected for a multi-mandate election district, the aforementioned MP in a term of 1 month is succeeded by the next sequential candidate in the appropriate reserve list, […]. If there no longer is a selectable candidate in the majoritarian list, the aforementioned MP mandate shall be deemed abolished”.
