(1) At the ruling on nominations every question relevant to the nomination of a person to be a candidate (including in particular the person's eligibility for election to the office of President) shall be open and may be raised by the presidential returning officer or the judicial assessor or any person purported to be nominated as a candidate at the presidential election concerned or the authorised representative of such a person.
(2) For the purpose of deciding any question at issue during the ruling on nominations, the presidential returning officer or the judicial assessor (as the case may be) may receive and act on evidence, whether oral or written, tendered by or on behalf of any interested person, and may, if he so thinks proper, require such evidence to be given on oath and may for that purpose administer an oath.
