Subscription of nomination paper

13.—(1) The nomination paper shall give the electoral number of each person subscribing it.

(2) The nomination paper shall be subscribed by two electors as proposer and seconder, and by 8 other electors for that electoral ward as assenting to the nomination.

(3) As soon as practicable after each nomination paper has been delivered, the returning officer shall examine it and decide whether the candidate has been validly nominated.

(4) Where the returning officer decides that a nomination paper is invalid, he or she shall endorse and sign on the paper the fact and the reasons for his or her decision.

(5) The returning officer shall send notice of his or her decision that a nomination paper is valid or invalid to each candidate at his or her home address as given in his or her nomination paper.

(6) The returning officer’s decision that a nomination paper is valid or invalid shall be final and shall not be questioned in any proceeding whatsoever.

(7) A person shall not subscribe more than one nomination paper in respect of the same electoral ward and, if he or she does, his or her signature shall be inoperative on any paper other than the one first delivered, but he or she shall not be prevented from subscribing a nomination paper by reason only of his or her having subscribed that of a candidate who has died or withdrawn before delivery of the first mentioned paper.
