Matters raised in the joint legal petition by the National Federation Party and SODELPA have been revealed in a statement.
The statement was released by NFP and SODELPA leaders Professor Biman Prasad and Sitiveni Rabuka.
An election petition was filed yesterday in court by Mamlakak Lawyers on issues arising out of the conduct, count and tallying of results in the 2018 General Election.
Some of the matters raised in the petition include claims of unlawful conduct by election candidates under the Electoral Act and alleged breaches by the Supervisor of Elections of his duties under the Electoral Act.
Both leaders of the Parties say pending direction from court, the petitioners are not releasing the petition to the media.
The petition must, under the Constitution, be determined by the Court of Disputed Returns within 21 days and that is by the end of this month.
