Introduction

The judiciary in many jurisdictions has been clothed with a prominent role in the promotion of free and fair election. The fear of a disruptive and intervening court upsetting the electoral process in an untimely manner is gradually giving way to a more positive approach to a constructive role for the court. Election cases do not always attract the attention of law reporters, particularly in small countries. Thus, many important contributions by the courts to the development of election law and management are not widely appreciated. In each of the following themes, cases collected from many jurisdictions illustrate significant judicial decisions and utterances on vital issues. The overall strategy employed in this compilation is to demonstrate the contribution of the courts to the proper organisation and conduct of free and fair multi-party elections.
