Purdah

From the start of the pre-election period ('purdah'), the council must comply with restrictions outlined in Section 2 of the Local Government Act 1986. The act defines publicity as "any communication, in whatever form, addressed to the public at large or to a section of the public."

Generally, the act says that we should "not publish any material which, in whole, or in part, appears to be designed to affect public support for a political party."

The Code of Practice recommends that authorities should generally not issue any publicity which seeks to influence voters and that publicity relating to individuals involved directly in the election should not be published unless expressly authorised by statute.
