Mr. Justice Frank Seepersad has today dismissed the election petition filed against the Elections and Boundaries Commission (EBC) relating to the electoral district of Arima Northeast and has ordered the Petitioner to pay the costs of the EBC certified fit for Senior and Junior Counsel.
Mr. Justice Seepersad, in delivering his judgement found that the Petition filed by the United National Congress’ candidate for the electoral district of Arima Northeast, Jairzinho Domingo Gustav Rigsby was hopelessly flawed in that he failed to comply with mandatory provisions of the Representation of the People Act relating to election petitions.
