458. No sums of money other than those collected in accordance with this chapter by the official representative for an authorized party or independent candidate may be paid by him into the election fund put at the disposal of the official agent or be used by the official representative or his delegate to pay any election expense contemplated in section 452.
The official agent shall deposit the sums paid into the election fund put at his disposal in an account opened for that purpose at a Québec branch of a financial institution. In the case of an authorized party, the account shall be separate from that of the official representative.
It is not necessary to open such an account if the sums come exclusively from contributions made by an authorized independent candidate.
