In this general election, in which the two major parties have presented proportional parties, the NEC is in violation of the election law if the proportional parties are put together on the banner of a candidate for a district. But in the past, a request to verify that this was possible has actually entered the team.

Reporter Lee Kyung-won pointed out.


Actually, this is a photo of the tip of the team.

These are the plaques of the candidates for the last general election, with both parties listed.

There were many cases like this.

The Democratic Party and the United Party are eager to write down the names of proportional parties in this way, but it is illegal for the NEC.

Let's see Article 88 of the Election Act.

Candidates should not campaign for other party candidates.

Then, is it possible to do a proportional party campaign instead of other party candidates?

Proportional parties are candidates for electoral districts across the country, so it is against the law to write the names of proportional parties on the placard.

The premise was that it was a legally different party, whether it be a bell house or a sibling party.

But why did you see the case you saw earlier? It was a single candidate.

A single candidate means that two candidates have agreed and one of the candidates has resigned, and that there are no other political party candidates under the Election Law.

In the past, the name of a single candidate along with the name of two parties was problematic, and the Supreme Court ruled that if the single candidates were given the names of the two parties, the parties could be identified, so that there was no problem.

In the general election, there is a place where discussions on unification are in progress, but once they are unified, it is okay to write the names of political parties belonging to the two candidates.
