Victory in Court

Have just received the judgement of the High Court in the case regarding the and the , and am pleased to report that the Court has ruled the Electoral Commission was wrong (and hence the Crown Law advice was also wrong) to decide that the ineligibity to be a third party criteria of “a person involved in the administration of the affairs of a party” only referred to natural persons and not legal persons including incorporated societies.

This means the Electoral Commission decision granting the EPMU application is over-turned and the Electoral Commission now has to decide whether the EPMU is involved in the administration of the affairs of the Labour Party.

The EPMU also lost its counter claim asking for the Electoral Commission not to allow objections to applications, before they had made their decision.

I will put the pdf of the decision up shortly.
