QUEEN'S PARK -- Progressive Conservative MPP Belinda Karahalios wants to create a new law that would ensure "transparency and integrity" in political party elections, as her husband battles the Ontario PC party about a 2018 race that he claims was "rigged."

Jim Karahalios launched a $100,000 lawsuit in October claiming that operatives within the PC party manipulated a presidential race in an attempt to block him from winning.

The lawsuit alleges that election rules were breached and that ballot boxes were allegedly stuffed in order to elect his competitor, Brain Patterson, as party president.
