    Ahmed and others v United Kingdom [1999] IRLR 188 ECHR (0 other reports)

The facts

This case concerned a challenge by local government officers to the Local Government Officers (Political Restrictions) Regulations 1990. These were introduced following the recommendations of the Widdicombe Committee, which had been set up in 1985 to inquire into the respective roles of elected members and officers of local government authorities in light of what was seen as the increasing politicisation of local politics.
