GENERAL ELECTIONS 1954.
LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL ELECTIONS
TIHE Public is hereby notified that there are four
I very serious election offences against which
every citizen should guard. These offences are
known as Bribery, Treating, Undue Influence and
Personation. They are given in detail in Sections
63-9 of the Legislative Council (Elections) Or-
dinance, 1951, (No. 10 of 1951.) In order that the
*existence of these offences may be known to all, a
.short summary of them is given below:
1. BRIBERY: This is an offence which in-
volves influencing persons to vote or not to vote
for a particular candidate by the offer of money,
employment, gifts or similar things. It is also an
offence for a person to accept such a bribe for the
purpose mentioned. It is still an offence if a per-
son works indirectly through other persons.
2. TREATING: 1.his is an offence of the same
nature us Bribery except that the thing offered is
tood, drink, entertainment or any similar thing..
3. UNDUE INFLUENCE: This offence in-
volves the use of threats of -force, violence or
restraint or the actual use of these tc influence a
person to vote for a candidate or to refraini from
voting for a candidate.
4. PERSONATION: Involves either applying
for ballot paper in the name of another person or
actually voting in the name of that person or voting
twice in the same-name.
These offences are'all serious offences. A con-
viction for Bribery, Treating, or Undue Influence
may result in imprisonment for six months or a
fine of $4S0. Personation is a more serious offence
and leads to indictment and, on conviction, im-
prisonment up to a period of two years.
Convictions for these offences also result in a
person being incapable for a period of 7 years of
being registered as a voter and of being elected as
a member of the Legislative Council or of retaining
his seat if he is still a member.
