Mandel ruled ineligible until 2023 after missing deadline

Elections Alberta says that Alberta Party Leader Stephen Mandel is ineligible to run for five years due to delays in filing financial statements from his nomination contest last year.

Mandel told reporters yesterday that his chief-financial officer missed the deadline to file a key financial report last fall and he says he was never told about that until a couple of weeks ago, when it was already to late.

The controversy comes as the Alberta Party and its rivals race to fill up their slates of 87 candidates for the spring election.

Mandel is now going to court to argue that he should be let back into the race because he says the documents from Elections Alberta don't clearly spell out the deadline dates
