    put up one candidate

    Each party is allowed to put up one candidate.
    William has been put up as a candidate for the committee.
    Is Chris willing to be put up for election?


    Could you tell me what "put up" means in these sentences?

    Re: put up one candidate

    It means 'to present' 'presented'. To present ones self as a candidate means to make ones self available for election.
