Jacky Lumarque, the representative of the Verite Party, has been expelled by the Provisional Electoral Council (PEC) from the run of the Presidential election because he could not produce his discharge certificate as required by an election decree as per its mandate mentioned in Article 90 paragraph.

Lumarque is a Mathematics graduate from the Université Toulouse III, France and a Bachelor in Law from Common Law University, Lyon III, France. He is also a member of the "Conseil Associatif" of AUF, Member of the "Comité de Gestion" of AUF, and Coordinator of the Presidential Working Group on Education.
