Alistair Carmichael Election Challenge Thrown Out
The election of Alistair Carmichael at May's election has been confirmed to MPs after a court challenge against him was dismissed.
Speaker John Bercow told the Commons the Liberal Democrat former cabinet minister had been "duly returned'' by the people of Orkney and Shetland.
The ruling follows a three-day Election Court hearing last month after four of Mr Carmichael's constituents launched a bid to oust him from his Orkney and Shetland seat.
The constituents claimed Mr Carmichael misled voters with his actions surrounding the leaking of a confidential memo which wrongly claimed First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said she wanted David Cameron to remain in Downing Street at the general election.
Following the ruling, Mr Bercow said: "I have to inform the House that, as required by section 144 of the Representation of the People Act 1983, I have received the certificate from the judges appointed to try the election petition relating to the Orkney and Shetland constituency election on May 7 2015.
"The judges have determined the petition be dismissed and have certified the Honourable Member for that constituency was duly returned at the said election.
"I shall lay the certificate on the table together with the shorthand writer's notes and will cause the full text of the certificate to be entered in the journal.''
Mr Carmichael has not been prevented from taking a full part in Commons proceedings since May.
