23. All the members of the National Assembly of Québec who, within seven days after the adoption of a question or of a bill that is to be submitted to the referendum, register with the director general of elections for one of the options, shall form the provisional committee in favour of such option.
Where, at the end of the delay provided for in the first paragraph, no member of the National Assembly of Québec has registered in favour of one of the options, the director general of elections may invite not less than three nor more than twenty electors to form the provisional committee in favour of such option. Such electors must be chosen from among the persons publicly identified with such option.
The director general of elections shall, with the least possible delay, call a meeting of each provisional committee at the place, day and time he indicates. At such meeting, the members of each provisional committee shall adopt the by-laws to govern the national committee in favour of such option and appoint the chairman thereof.
