How about telling you you cant run for office at all unless you are on an approved party list. This could very easily lead to just such scenarios.

When I use the phrase "meet the criteria to run for office" I basically mean citizenship, age, and petition signatures. There should never be an approved party list. All parties should be able to participate. My concern is with an individual candidate.
