Section 123(4) & 86

Representation of the People Act, 1951
Section 123(4) & 86 read with
The Code of Civil Procedure, 1908
Sec. 151 & Ord. VI Rule 16, Ord. VII Rule 11
Election is a technical one–
The law relating to election is a technical one as it amounts to a challenge laid to the democratic process determining the will of the people. An eligible person whether a candidate or a voter coming to Court, seeking to set aside any election has to, thus, meet with the technical natures of the election petition and the provisions prescribed under the said Act as otherwise it would be fatal to the election petition at the threshold itself. It is in these circumstances that the principles have been succinctly set out in Mithilesh Kumar Pandey8. The observations in that case provide for clerical and typographical errors to be corrected. Thus, issues like mentioning of the correct number of annexures or tagging with the file, etc. would all fall within the said Section. [8 supra] .....Abdulrasakh =VS= K.P.
