Challenge to EPMU decision to register as Third Party
I have been advised that National is challenging the decision that the EPMU can register as a third party under the Electoral Finance Act. Again. It was supposed to have been listed today.
The Electoral Commission had decided to register the EPMU as a third party back in January, but was overturned by the High Court. Last week the Commission announced again that it would grant registration as it determined that the EPMU is not involved in the affairs of Labour.
Court papers challenging the decision were filed today.
