Freedom of speech 2, National nil

DPF reports that the National Party has failed in its attempt to silence the EPMU. The full decision is here. As expected, the court refused to second-guess the Electoral Commission's assessment of the facts, instead concerning itself with whether the Commission had misinterpreted the law or failed to consider important issues. It hadn't, and so the Commission's decision that the EPMU is entitled to be listed as a Third Party stands.

Update: Fixed title.
