Article 111 creates an incompatibility between holding a mandate of a Member of Parliament and being nominated as a candidate for local self-government elections. As noted in the previous Joint Opinion, this restriction is excessive. While it is widely accepted that restrictions against cumulating elected mandates can oblige the holder of two mandates to surrender one, after he/she is elected, such a restriction should not be applied to candidacies. It is recommended this provision be amended accordingly.
