(Temporary Measures) Act [Chapter 10:20], hereby makes the following
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
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).
