A case of 'not only …. but also' correlative conjunction parallelism.


A. not only promised to incorporate several popular ideas from her defeated opponents, including some she criticized at the beginning of the campaign, but to include her two principal opponents in her cabinet, if she won----. 'not only promised' … 'but to include' - wrong parallelism

B. not only promised to incorporate several popular ideas from her defeated opponents, including some she criticized at the beginning of the campaign, but also to include her two principal opponents in her cabinet, if she wins----not only promised … but also to include' wrong as in A.
]

C. not only promised to incorporate several popular ideas from her defeated opponents, including some she criticized at the beginning of the campaign, but also to include her two principal opponents in her cabinet, if she won --
The repetition of the same errors in A and B.

D. promised not only to incorporate several popular ideas from her defeated opponents, including some she criticized at the beginning of the campaign, but by including her two principal opponents in her cabinet as well, if she wins ---- 'not only to incorporate….but by including ' is wrong.

E. promised not only to incorporate several popular ideas from her defeated opponents, including some she criticized at the beginning of the campaign, but also to include her two principal opponents in her cabinet, if she wins --- not only to incorporate… but also to include -- correct parallelism

The candidate promised........, if she wins

Could anyone explain me sentence construction?
Comma before if is not required and use of present tense verb in if clause with past simple in main clause.

Please help to understand this.
