The appellant-petitioner took an appeal from the order of the lower Court involving an election contest. This was error. The proper procedure was to file a petition for certiorari under Supreme Court Rule 68 1/2 within thirty days from the date of the order sought to be reviewed. No petition was filed within the thirty-day time limit. Thereafter, a petition was filed by the petitioner-appellant, Harold H. Rape, for allowance of an appeal nunc pro tunc under Rule 68 1/2. We find no merit in this petition.
Petition denied and appeal quashed.
