    His Excellency the President, in terms of section 2 of the Presidential Powers (Temporary Measures) Act [Chapter 10:20], hereby makes the following regulations:

    Title
    1. These regulations may be cited as the Presidential Powers (Temporary Measures) (Amendment of Electoral Act) Regulations, 2008.

    Amendment of section 125 of Cap. 2:13
    2. Section 125 ("Nomination of candidates") of the Electoral Act [Chapter 2:13] (No. 25 of 2004) is amended by the repeal of subsection (3).1


    2  The effect of this repeal is that a candidate for election to a local authority council no longer has to support his nomination paper with a police clearance certificate (as evidence that he or she is not disqualified by reason of previous convictions) and a clearance certificate from the council concerned (as evidence that he or she is not disqualified by reason of being in default with the payment of rates, levies etc. to the council). The repeal is purely procedural. It does not abolish the relevant disqualifications; they remain in force (see section 119(2)(d), (e) and (h) of the Electoral Act). Note by Veritas.
