(2) The regional election board shall remove any candidate:

whose statement pursuant to Article 31, Paragraph 7 above has not been enclosed;

who has been listed on several lists of candidates filed by several different Political Parties or their coalitions. However, the candidate shall be removed only from such list/lists of candidates with which the candidate's statement pursuant to Article 31, Paragraph 7 above has not been enclosed; should a candidate have signed statements to be attached to several different lists of candidates, the candidate shall be removed from all the lists of candidates on which he/she has been listed;

who shall be in excess of the greatest number of candidates permitted to be nominated pursuant to Article 31, Paragraph 6 above;

who fails to be eligible to be elected (see Article 25 above);

whose data fail to furnish the entire set of information required by the provisions of Article 31, Paragraph 2, Letter (b) hereinbefore.

(3) The regional election board shall reject a list of candidates if filed at variance with Article 31, Paragraph 1 hereinbefore; or if lacking in the due essentials required by the provisions of Article 31, Paragraphs 2, 3, and 4 hereinbefore in case such deficiencies cannot be rectified by measures defined in Paragraph 2, Letter (e) of this Article; or if the Appendix to the list of candidates provided for in Article 31, Paragraph 4 herein be missing. Any Political Party or coalition may appeal against the decision of the regional election board to reject its list of candidates to the Central Election Board. Such an appeal shall be lodged with the Central Election Board by the Political Party or coalition no later than twenty-four hours following the receipt of the decision. The decision rendered by the Central Election Board shall then be binding on the regional election board.

The conclusions of the review shall be forwarded by the chairman of the regional election board to each Political Party and coalition that has filed its list of candidates in the electoral region in question.
