The DEMOC campaign has launched a Protective Judicial Review of Croydon Council’s determination of DEMOC’s petition as invalid, pursuant to Regulation 9 (1) (c) of The Local Authorities (Referendums) (Petitions) (England) Regulations 2011, as amended by the Local Government and Police and Crime Commissioner (Coronavirus) (Postponement of Elections and Referendums) (England and Wales) Regulations (2020) (‘2020 Postponement Regulations’). The Judicial Review is to be stayed, pending the outcome of a parallel litigation on the same point, raised in a claim against a determination by Newham Council in relation to a petition.
For legal reasons there are no further comments at this time.
