Electoral Commission sorry for out-of-date AMs advice

BBC news 5 July 2011

The elections watchdog has apologised after a new Welsh assembly member fell victim to out-of-date guidance for candidates and was disqualified.

An independent investigation found Liberal Democrat Aled Roberts did everything reasonably expected.

The relevant guidance was changed before the election, but only the English language document was updated. The AM only referred to the Welsh language version, which was out of date.
