Former TUV councillor William Blair.
A FORMER TUV Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Councillor who narrowly lost his seat in the recent election has called for a police investigation into a DUP mock ballot paper which described him as an Alliance candidate.
Mr William Blair has claimed that this mock ballot being distributed at some polling stations on election day was a breach of electoral law.
However DUP Cllr Ivor Wallace, who was the Vote 1 candidate on the mock ballot, said that it was a genuine mistake by the printer, with Alliance being marked out immediately the mistake was pointed out.
Police say that a complaint has been received and “enquiries are continuing” into the matter.
