A candidate from a political party can run for the parliament only if this person is a member of this party, or non-party person, deputy head of the Central Election Commission Andriy Magera told a briefing, ForUm correspondent reports.

He told that the law forbids the political parties to nominate candidates from other parties or persons, who have membership in two and more parties. Such people also cannot be registered as candidates for the parliament.

At the same time Magera noted that there is no effective mechanism to determine people with double party membership. The official underlined that if a candidate with "double membership" manages to become a member of the parliament, his double status cannot be a ground to deprive him of the status of a deputy.

"The constitution and legislation have a clear list of reasons, on which a deputy can be deprived of his status," he said and added that "double party membership" is not on this list.
