The United Workers Party (UWP) is looking to thwart the upcoming by-elections by taking the matter to court.
July 9 is the date set for the elections in the Marigot and Salisbury constituencies but UWP leader Ron Green insists there’s an issue with the manner in which seats were declared vacant by house speaker Alix Boyd-Knights in May.
The UWP leader has argued the decision may be unconstitutional and should be left to the courts to decide.
“If indeed the courts determine the seats are not vacated, there’s no need for by-election,” he said firmly.
Green says if elections must go ahead “we will contest and win”.
