An attempt by a disqualified by-election candidate to have the Supreme Court set aside a ruling by the Electoral Court barring him from contesting Friday's by-election has been thrown out of court. 

The Human Rights Protection Party (H.R.P.P.) candidate for Falealupo, Tuitogamanaia Dr. Peniamina Leavai, had his candidacy nullified by the Electoral Court on Monday, leaving his sole rival candidate Fuiono Tenina Crichton to become the seat's Member-elect.
