The Representation of the People Act 1983, requires that any criminal charges be brought within one year of the alleged offence being committed. The Elections Administration Act 2006, allowed that period to extend to two years provided an application is made to a magistrate within the one year period. The 2014 elections are out of time for criminal charges to be brought. If there are allegations about the May GE, any complainants better get a move on - time is passing! The Electoral Commission can fine a political party outside those time limits. I think the maximum is £20K. I understand that a complaint has been made to the Commission, which is now investigating.
