At the convention meeting of the state central committee, the state central committee shall consist initially of only those members of central committees elected at the most recent presidential primary election or selected pursuant to Section 7784.
At its convention and subsequent meetings the state central committee, in its sole discretion, may appoint any additional members to the state central committee as it may desire.
The state central committee may require a balance of elected and appointed members so that 50 percent of the state central committee members from each county are women and 50 percent are men.
No person shall be appointed to membership on the state central committee unless she or he is registered as a voter affiliated with the Peace and Freedom Party or would register as a voter affiliated with this party if not legally prohibited from doing so.
This committee may remove any elected or appointed member who, during the term of membership, affiliates with or registers as a member of another political party, publicly advocates that the voters should not vote for the nominee of the party for any office, publicly gives support to or avows a preference for a candidate of another party or candidate who is opposed to a candidate nominated by this party, or has violated the bylaws or constitution of the state central committee.
