Ialibu Pangia runner up seeks clarification on Sunday voting

The Supreme Court Reference filed by the runner up in the Ialibu Pangia 2017 National General Elections, Stanley Liria will be heard at the end of this month.

The Supreme Court convened today since adjourning the case last week Tuesday.

Today was however spent clarifying the withdrawal of another two applications filed by Mr Liria that had sought a Court Order to stop the counting and declaration of the Ialibu Pangia seat.

The two applications have been withdrawn because the counting and declaration has already taken place.

The matter before the Court now, is the Supreme Court Reference seeking interpretation on section 130 of the Organic Law on National and Local Level Government Elections, on whether voting on a Sunday was constitutional.

The matter will return on the 31st of July 2017.
