Paragraph 24

However the proposed electoral system gives preferential rights to the top five candidates of each political party. If mandate allocation is to be based on the individual performance of candidates in obtaining votes then this rule should apply equally to all candidates. The proposed special treatment of the top five candidates on the list violates the fundamental principle of non-discrimination and equal treatment before the law.
