Registration for party-backed candidates were opened between 8 and 10 January 2018, while independent candidates were required to register between 22 and 26 November 2017.[3][4] The numerical order of the candidates were determined on 13 February through a lottery.[5] The campaigning period would commence between 15 February and 24 June, with a three-day election silence before voting on 27 June.[6]

CandidatesEdit

Under regulations, candidates are required to secure the support of a political party or a coalition thereof comprising at least 20 seats in the regional house. Alternatively, independent candidates may run provided they are capable of securing support from 6.5 percent of the total voter population (2,132,470) in form of photocopied ID cards subject to verification by the local committee although no candidates expressing interest managed to do this.[2][4]
