A. that the success of an earlier election campaign be repeated and that their voter base remain informed about their legislative achievements -- I think this is the correct choice as it maintains the subjunctive mood form on both arms of the requirements.
B. to repeat the success of an earlier election campaign and that their voter base remain informed about their legislative achievements --- infinitive and subjunctive are unparallel
C. repeating the success of an earlier election campaign and keeping their voter base informed about its legislative achievements --‘its’ is SV error
D. that the success of an earlier election campaign be repeated and that their voter base remains informed about their legislative --- remains informed is unsubjunctive
E. a successful repetition of an earlier election campaign and the informed remainder of the voter base regarding legislative achievements --- remainder is awful; This is not a GMAT error

A. that the success of an earlier election campaign be repeated and that their voter base remain informed about their legislative achievements
B. to repeat the success and that their voter base remain informed are not parallel.
C. this is in active voice and is not parallel to what is required
D. that the success of an earlier election campaign be repeated and that their voter base remains informed about their legislative achievements
E. a successful repetition of an earlier election campaign and the informed remainder of the voter base regarding legislative achievements............informed remainder is awkward and incorrect way of parallelism.

between A and D, I missed the point that subjunctive verb is always plural and opted for D.

Hi Siddharth, the difference is between remain and remains.

Since the sentence uses subjunctive, remain is the appropriate usage.

p.s. Our book EducationAisle Sentence Correction Nirvana discusses Subjunctive, its application and examples in significant detail. If you or someone is interested, PM me your email-id; I can mail the corresponding section.
