    I think it's perfectly correct.

    Candidates. Or "a good candidate," if singular.

    Thanks Ferdie11 and soothing Dave.

    Where I got worried was when I used past-tense 'did' for furture occurence.

    Once again, thanks for letting me know that I'm correct.

    Your sentence is good for the situation where it is in between the nominating of candidates and the actual election.

    If you want to talk of future, hypothetical events, then you should say something like "Any political party that does not...should not."
