Liberals say 13 Labor candidates are ineligible

THE Liberal Party has claimed 13 Labor candidates are ineligible to stand in Saturday's federal election, including the man whom polls suggest could knock Malcolm Turnbull out of Parliament.

Labor called the claims "baseless".

Liberal campaign spokesman Andrew Robb has said his party may challenge election results in court if candidate they believe were ineligible won seats on Saturday.
