Before an election, registered parties that want to contest the election must submit lists of their candidates. Lists that comply with the legislation are made available to the public for inspection. At this point, anyone can object to a candidate by submitting a written objection to the IEC. Once objections and appeals have been processed, the final candidate lists are published.
Deadlines for the candidate submission process are published in the election timetable.
