206.55. In no case may an authorized candidate pay a contested claim or the contested part of a claim except in execution of a judgment of a competent court obtained by the creditor after a hearing of the case and not upon an acquiescence in the demand or an agreement of settlement.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, where no candidate objects, the director general of the English-language school service centre may authorize the candidate to pay a contested claim or the contested part of the claim if the refusal or failure to pay results from an error made in good faith. Where the claim arises from an election expense attributable to an authorized candidate, the payment thereof may be contested only by a candidate for the same office.
