Individual members propose candidates; nomination takes place at a meeting of the constituency organization at which all members have the right to vote; the regional organization shall give its approval if the same candidate is nominated by more than one constituency. The national organization has no official role in candidate selection (Katz and Mair, 253 - Patti Goff)
