adjustment of electoral divisions, qualifications for election as a member of the House of Representatives, and the rules governing the Elections and Boundaries Commission.

The Representation of the People Act contains detailed provisions regarding the conduct of elections and the
administration of the electoral system, including the franchise and registration of voters, offences relating to the electoral system, election-day procedures, the counting of votes and ascertainment of election results, and procedures for the petitioning of election results.
