SI 2017-117 Presidential Powers (Temporary Measures)(Amendment of Electoral Act) Regulations

These regulations were gazetted in a Government Gazette  Extraordinary on Friday 15th September 2017.

The regulations amend the following provisions of the Electoral Act:

  • section 24 [Claims for registration]
  • section 25 [Claims for transfer of registration]
  • section 36A [New registration of voters]
  • section 56 [Entitlement to vote, number of votes and identification of voters]

There is also a Schedule of minor amendments which merely correct instances of now outdated terminology.  These amendments were obviously omitted in error when the Electoral Act was amended by the Electoral Amendment Act [Act 6/2014] and the General Laws Amendment Act [Act 3/2016].
