§ 109

Declarations of candidates who were elected twice

When a candidate is elected on more than one list of candidates (provincial list of candidates/federal list of candidates), he or she has to present a written declaration to the federal elections authority, stating which elections proposal they choose to remain on, within 48 hours after the announcement of the last election results (§ 105, para 1, and § 108, para 4), which lead to him being elected twice. When no declaration from the candidate who was elected twice is submitted within the given time period, the decision as to which elections proposal they remain on is made by the federal elections authority. The elections authorities concerned by this decision are to be informed of this decision.
