the rule is, that only one third of the members of a TDF body had to
have the same affiliation (§ 8 IV S. 2 of the statutes): if there are
five members in a body, two of them would be more than one third.
The deputies of the MC are not elected members of the MC and thus the
one third rule is not valid for them (as long as they are deputies).
Once they replace a MC member (possible only after her/his retirement)
the rule applies to the then new member of the MC too.
If an elected member doesn't accept his role, she/he is completely out.
You could not step some positions back (to get deputy).
