Short summary:
Civil Procedure, Actions and applications
Headnote and holding:

The court held that as the second appellate
court, it is not required to re appraise the
evidence. That on second appeal, the court is
precluded from questioning the findings of fact
of the trial court. That there was a clear
evidence of irregularity in the conduct of the
election in issue rendering the integrity of the
result of a diminished value. That the findings
of the first appellate court were based on
reason that cannot be faulted. That the award
of costs is a discretional role which must be
exercised judiciously and since all the
irregularities were committed by the electoral
commission, each party would meet their costs.
