GENERAL ELECTION 2013 –
AN UPDATE



 



The Acting Governor, Owen
O’Sullivan, has today announced his intention to fix the closing date for
Nominations, which will be Tuesday 2 July 2013
. This will be confirmed
formally, along with other Election details, in a Writ of Election which is to
be issued shortly.



 



Nomination forms will be available
from the Returning Officer, at 1 Main Street, from Monday 3 June.
Duly completed forms can be submitted to the Returning Officer, during office
hours, up to noon on the closing date of 2 July 2013.



 



Candidates, and their sponsors and
supporters (each nomination needs two sponsors and five supporters), must all
be registered as electors. In addition, Candidates must be over 21 years of age
and not disqualified due to (for example) to mental illness, holding a judicial
office, serving a prison sentence exceeding 12 months, or being a member of the
Public Service. Public Officers can, in fact, be allowed to stand in certain
circumstances - Officers should seek guidance from their line managers, or from
the Returning Officer.



 



The period allowed for application
to amend the Provisional Register of Electors expired on Friday 24 May.
The final Register of Electors, which will take effect from 1 July 2013, will
be published as soon as possible.
