The applicant made two complaints of breach of union rules relating to elections. Complaint one concerned alleged interference in the election ballot for general council and complaint two alleged that the scrutineer failed to carry out his functions properly. The Certification Officer refused to make a declaration in relation to complaint one and made a declaration and issued an enforcement order in relation to the scrutineer's report in respect of his failure to carry out his functions properly.
