156. The returning officer shall declare elected the candidate who received the largest number of votes.
If the tie-vote still exists after a judicial recount, the returning officer shall order a new election for the electoral division concerned or for the community representative seat concerned and set the date of the poll so that it is held as rapidly as possible after the judge has rendered a decision. As soon as possible, the returning officer shall inform each person who was a candidate in the election that resulted in a tie of the date of the poll.
The second, third and fourth paragraphs of section 200 apply to the election, with the necessary modifications. The list of electors in force is used and no new list need be prepared. The list is deposited as soon as practicable after publication of the notice of election and the list need not be revised.
