In brief: No

No many do not, diseases that do not affect the cerebral cortex are unlikely to cause seizures, for example parkinson's disease does not cause seizures.

In brief: No

While some brain diseases such as tumors and meningitis are associated with an increased rate of seizure, others such as parkinsons disease do not see any significant change in seizure risk.
