    In Ahmed and others v United Kingdom [1999] IRLR 188 ECHR, the European Court of Human Rights held that the Local Government Officers (Political Restrictions) Regulations 1990 did not breach the European Convention on Human Rights, since the interference with the employees' rights had been shown to be 'prescribed by law', in pursuance of one or more legitimate aims within the meaning of Article 10(2) of the Convention and was 'necessary in a democratic society' to attain them.
