And according to the electoral justice ruling, «in the case of elections of different legal nature – which is evidenced by the choice of candidates in the provincial ones and pre-candidates in the national ones – would be inappropriate and in the way of the principles of clarity and transparency required by the electoral process, to proceed with the accession of suffrage ballots». As the judges ruled, the central motive for this measure is to avoid voter confusion.
