A new case of annulment of the list of signatures in support of a candidate, has been added to Article 43.4: the whole list will be disqualified if more than 5% of collected signatures should be determined to be false. The disqualification of petitions “in which names have been entered prior to the official start of the nomination period”, regardless of the number of such names, is hardly acceptable. The same goes with disqualifying valid signatures, because others have not been considered authentic.
