rough-and-tumble
Explanation:
This is a noun. You might used it this way: rough-and-tumble of an election.

This term does not necessarily condemn the election as morally or legally unacceptable. It merely describes the atmosphere which usually raises an observer's eyebrows. Is this what the questioner meant to say?
