Section Q6
 

  1. The registration of an appellation of a political grouping for an election to the House of Representatives, as referred to in section G 1, shall also apply to an election to the Senate.


 



  1. A political grouping which is an association with full legal competence, whose appellation has not been registered for an election to the House of Representatives, may request the central electoral committee for the election to the Senate in writing to enter the appellation by which it wishes to be known on the list of candidates for that election in a register kept by the central electoral committee. Requests received after the forty-third day before nomination shall not be considered for the next election.


 



  1. Subsections 2 to 7 of section G 1 shall apply mutatis mutandis, provided that, for the purposes of subsection 7 (d), ‘the House of Representatives’ is read as ‘the Senate’.


 



  1. Apart from the grounds referred to in section G 1, subsection 4, a request to register the appellation of a political grouping for an election to the Senate shall be rejected if the appellation is identical with or very similar to an appellation of another political grouping that has already registered for the election to the House of Representatives, or an appellation in respect of which a registration request for the election to the House of Representatives has been received earlier or on the same day, creating the risk of confusion.
