§ Lord Greaves
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Further to the Written Answer by the Lord Falconer of Thoroton on 16 July (WA107), what recourse a candidate has if the returning officer fails to place on the ballot paper the correct party logo which has been properly supplied by the candidate representing the registered party concerned. [HL440]
§ Lord Falconer of Thoroton
It is open to anyone to raise a petition in the electoral court if they consider that any action of a returning officer has unfairly affected the result of the election. In addition, anyone can inform the police for consideration of action under Section 63 of the Representation of the People Act 1983 if they consider that the returning officer has committed a breach of his official duty.
