Watt (formerly Carter) v. Ahsan

An unsuccessful applicant for selection as a local election candidate who alleged that his party’s failure to select him had been motivated by racial discrimination should have brought his claim against the party under s 25 of the Race Relations Act 1976 in county court proceedings, but an employment tribunal having ruled that it had jurisdiction to hear the complaint under s 12 of the Act, the party was estopped from claiming that the tribunal did not have jurisdiction.”
