Lists of votes claimed or objected to

                (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.
