What appears to be an omission in subsection 3 of this section is provided for by paragraph (e) of subsection 1 of section 4, which says:
Six scrutineers, three to be appointed on the nomination of the Prime Minister, and three on that of the leader of the Opposition. The appointment shall state the respective addresses at which notices given under this part may be served. One of each nomination may be present on each occasion of the opening of ballot boxes, and at the examination, application and counting of ballots, and every scrutineer shall have and may exercise all the rights of a candidate or his representative at any poll.
I think that is- sufficient, because subsection 3 of section 12 provides that the ballot shall be opened only in the presence of the returning officers and clerks.
Subtopic: FURTHER CONSIDERATION IN COMMITTEE.
