Inquiries and legal proceedings

See field: provincial, municipal

The Act respecting School elections (s. 30.4) gives us the power to inquire, of our own initiative or at the request of another person, into the application of the Act.

We also have the power to institute legal proceedings (s. 223.3 ASE) for the violations stipulated in the Act respecting School elections. Prescription of legal proceedings occurs one year after our knowledge of the perpetration of the offence. However, no legal proceedings may be instituted if more than five years have elapsed since the perpetration of the offence.
