Press Release: EBC pleased with Court of Appeal ruling

The Elections and Boundaries Commission (EBC) is pleased with the Court of Appeal’s decision to uphold the ruling of High Court Judge, Justice Marissa Robertson in the election petition filed by the United National Congress (UNC) against the EBC in the electoral district of Lengua/Indian Walk, in the 2023 Local Government Elections.

Fern Narcis-Scope, Chief Election Officer said notwithstanding the adversarial nature of litigation, the Commission acknowledges all political parties as important stakeholders in this country’s democratic process. Narcis-Scope added that both High Court and Court of Appeal judges ruled that the EBC “acted correctly” and in accordance with the law in the circumstances.

With respect to statements made by judges in both the High Court and Court of Appeal regarding the EBC’s conduct in this matter, the Commission will review these comments in earnest and make the necessary adjustments in its operations for future elections.
