Llarena recalls, in addition, that Sànchez was presented as number two on that list being already deprived of freedom. "As much as it implies an obvious limitation for its participation in electoral campaign, neir does it imply inability to be elected nor does it imply a fundamental loss or alteration of effectiveness of right of democratic participation of those who share A political project that defends its constituency of electors or of prosecuted itself, since researched does not have today completely nullified its capacity to address electorate and, on or hand, its eligibility is linked in a favorable way to that of or members Of same candidacy, which do fully address campaign activities.
