In reply to comment: No he would not be on the ballot (see in situ)

I got it right here:

from the OP:

"in order to have the party designation of its candidates printed on the ballot "

It says nothing about not being on the ballot at all, it says that the party designation will not be printed on the ballot.

What part of that plain English escapes you?
