Version of section 368.1 from 2004-01-01 to 2014-12-18:

Marginal note:Preservation of name

 In the period of 30 days after the deregistration of a political party,

  • (a) no application for another political party to become a registered party may be accepted — and no report under section 382 shall be effective — that would permit another political party to use a name, short-form name, abbreviation or logo that would, in the Chief Electoral Officer’s opinion, likely be confused with that of the deregistered party; and

  • (b) if a new application is made for the registration of the deregistered party under the name, short-form name, abbreviation and logo that it had at the time of its deregistration, the Chief Electoral Officer may not refuse the application on the ground that it does not comply with paragraph 368(a).
