“BY SECTION 31 (5) & (6) OF THE ELECTORAL ACT, A PERSON WHO HAS REASONABLE GROUNDS TO BELIEVE THAT ANY INFORMATION GIVEN IN THE AFFIDAVIT OR ANY OF THE DOCUMENTS SUBMITTED BY ANY OF THE CANDIDATES IS FALSE, MAY FILE A SUIT IN COURT SEEKING A DECLARATION THAT SUCH INFORMATION IS FALSE.

“IF THE COURT DETERMINES THAT THE INFORMATION IS FALSE, THE COURT SHALL ISSUE AN ORDER DISQUALIFYING THE CANDIDATE FROM CONTESTING THE ELECTION.”
