Legal remedies

A legal remedy serves to contest the decision of a public authority, in particular that of a court. Errors in the electoral procedure of Bundestag elections may only be contested by the legal remedies provided for in the Federal Elections Act and the Federal Electoral Regulations, and errors in European elections by the legal remedies of the European Elections Act and the European Electoral Regulations. Which legal remedy is available in the individual case depends on the measure to be dealt with.
