Refusal of a Political Party, Block of Political Parties from Participation in Elections to the Milli Majlis.
A political party according to its Charter, and a block of political parties according to a decision of the authorized representatives of its parties, shall be entitled upon written application to withdraw a candidate and registered candidate nominated in a single-mandate constituency any time within at least a 10 day period prior to the voting day.
A political party included in the block of political parties can apply to the Central Election Commission and refuse to participate in the elections as a member of a relevant block of political parties at least 10 days prior to the voting day, based on the decision of the authorized body of political party.
A political party, which has refused to participate in the election as a member of a relevant block of political parties can participate in the elections as an independent political party or can join another block of political parties in conformity with the rules established in this Code.
If all political parties (except one) constituting a block of political parties refuse to participate in the elections after the candidate nominated by the block of political parties is registered, the remaining political party can participate in the elections as a block of political parties, keeping its name and emblem. This cannot serve as a ground for refusal or cancellation of registration of candidates.
If a block of political parties refuses to participate in the elections, it shall not mean that political parties included in that block cannot participate either; in this case, re-nomination of a candidate and carrying out of other necessary election activities shall be required in accordance with this Code.
