148. Any interested person may apply to the Administrative Tribunal of Québec to contest or demand the annulment of any election held pursuant to this subdivision.
The motion must be presented within 60 days of the date on which the results of the election are known.
On receipt of the motion, the secretary of the Tribunal shall send a copy to the person against whom the proceedings are brought and to the Minister of Health and Social Services. The Minister may intervene at any stage in the proceeding and in such case is a party thereto.
The Tribunal may confirm or annul the election or declare another person duly elected.
Where the Tribunal annuls the election of a member without declaring another person duly elected, a new election must be held without delay.
A member so elected shall remain in office for the unexpired portion of the term of office of the member whose election is annulled.
