Supreme Court Election petition review

Kandiu application ruling deferred

The ruling that was to be done by Justice Collin Makail this morning was deferred to a later date after submissions were made on Wednesday.

Kandiu, who finished third in the 2012 General Election in the NCD Regional seat, 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.
