Parkinson's affects what we call the autonomic system and prevents the body from normally reacting to the standing position.
Gravity takes over and the blood pressure drops causing people to fall or pass out.

In brief: Not directly

Parkinson's may cause autonomic dysfunction and lead to passing out spells directly but more often, those with advanced parkinson's are very debilitated and pass out for a variety of related reasons but not directly from the parkinson's itself.
