Appeals in county elections
A decision by which the results of county elections have been confirmed may be appealed against to an administrative court within 14 days of the publication of the election results.
The following parties may lodge an appeal on the grounds that the decision is unlawful:
- any person whose interests or rights are violated by the decision,
- any candidate, and
- any political party and joint list that took part in the elections.
In addition, the following parties may lodge an appeal on the grounds that the county elections were conducted in an incorrect order:
- any person entitled to vote in the wellbeing services county, and
- any domiciled person or other stakeholder of the wellbeing services county.
If a decision or a measure of an election authority has been unlawful and it is evident that this may have affected the election results, the results must be rectified or, if this is not possible, new elections must be ordered to be held in the wellbeing services county concerned.
An appeal against the decision of the administrative court may be lodged with the Supreme Administrative Court.
