The CNE also informed that after this deadline passes, political parties can make substitutions or modifications in their nominations, but those will not be reflected in the electoral ballot due technical and logistical reasons.
A second phase of substitutions and modifications will begin on September 27 and will end on October 22 for list positions, while for the nominal posts this will continue until November 11.
The Organic Law of Electoral Processes establishes that political parties may substitute candidates in the event of death, resignation, physical or mental disability (duly certified by a competent authority), or for constitutional or legal reasons.
