Supreme Court Election petition

Kandiu asks court to revisit judgement

Kandiu who finished third in the 2012 General Election in the NCD Regional is asking leave of the Supreme Court to allow a re-visit to an earlier Supreme Court judgment.

If leave is granted, the full court will proceed to hear submissions of the slip rule application. A slip rule application is when a party seeks the court to revisit its decision after leave is granted to correct any accidental slip or omission in the judgment.

Two grounds are being relied on by Kandiu in the application; Bribery and error on the part of the trial judge in one of his finding.
