Lists of votes claimed or objected to

             (1)  If a petition:

                     (a)  claims a Parliamentary seat for a person who has not been returned as a Senator or member of the House of Representatives; and

                     (b)  claims that the person had a majority of valid votes;

each party must, at least 7 days before the date of the trial of a petition, file a list of the ballot-papers or classes of ballot-papers intended to be claimed or objected to.

             (2)  Subrule (1) does not apply if the petition only claims a fresh count of the votes counted at the election.

             (3)  If a party's list includes ballot-papers that are objected to, the list must include the grounds of objection on which the party intends to rely.
