Northern Ireland (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 2006

Part 1: Registration of electors

70.Schedule 4 makes minor and consequential amendments to the Electoral Law Act (Northern Ireland) 1962 (c.14) (N.I.), the 1983 Act, the Elected Authorities (Northern Ireland) Act 1989 (c.3), and the EAA in relation to the registration of electors, including registration-related appeals.

71.Paragraph 5 of Part 1 of Schedule 4 replaces section 58 of the 1983 Act, which deals with Northern Ireland appeals against determinations by the CEO. The current version of section 58 simply applies the equivalent provisions for England and Wales to Northern Ireland, with a few minor modifications. But, as a result of the amendments made by the Act, the modifications would need to be more complicated. The new section 58 therefore sets out the position for Northern Ireland in full.
