I think this is too important to let go through without consulting the Chiel Electoral Officer. If we are going to amend the rule, well and good, but I am satisfied the rule will not work under this clause. I want to see the seven-day clause retained. I want to see a workable act. This says that on the twelfth day before the election the returning officers shall do something in respect of the candidate, and on the ninth day before election he shall do something in respect of the candidate. Let us assume that there are no candidates announced on the ninth day before the election, how is he going to carry out his duties? On the 7th day we will say there are a dozen nominees.
