Under the revised Municipal Elections Act 2010, I quote: " Penalties for contravening the Municipal Elections Act, 1996 have been increased. A contributor who contravenes the contribution rules may face a fine of up to $25,000 ($50,000 for corporations and trade unions) and/or up to six months in prison if the offence was committed knowingly. Candidates who are convicted of contravening certain provisions of the Act also forfeit any office to which they were elected, and are ineligible to run until after the next regular election has taken place."

It says "convicted of contravening certain provisions of the Act...."

Do we know which acts trigger the ineligibility to run in the next election?
