Article 118(4) deals with vacancies which occur during the term in office of the National Assembly and states:
“If the mandate of a deputy elected to the National Assembly under proportional system is terminated early, the Central Electoral Commission shall give his or her mandate to the next person in that party’s electoral list, within one week. If there are no other candidates in the party’s electoral list, the mandate shall remain vacant.”
