The article deals with the expiry of the mandate of a Member of Parliament (a Deputy or Senator) in relations to the “termination” of the mandate for reasons other than the end of the term of the Chamber in the statutorily prescribed date. The author describes the preconditions for the expiry of the MP’s mandate, specifi ed in Article 247 § 1 and § 2, Article 279 § 1 and § 2 of the Electoral Code. These preconditions are: the death of an MP; loss of eligibility or lack of it on the election day; deprivation of the mandate of a fi nal and valid decision of the Tribunal of State; waiver of the mandate; holding on the election day a position or function, which pursuant to the provisions of the Constitution or statutes is incompatible with the seat of an MP; appointment during the term for the position or assignment of functions which — pursuant to the provisions of the Constitution or statutes — is incompatible with the seat of deputy or senator, as well as being elected during the term of parliament to the offi ce of Member of the European Parliament.
