The petitioner challenged the election of the respondents under the Representation of People Act 1983. He asserted that the respondents had not been duly elected as a result of defects in the nomination papers, and that as a result, the petitioner and the other two candidates with valid nomination papers ought to be declared duly elected. Held: The election was void due to the defects. A rerun of the election was thus required. Aileen McColgan was involved in this case.
