37. From publication of the list of electoral divisions in the Gazette officielle du Québec, the annual enumeration provided for in the Election Act (chapter E-3.2) shall be conducted on the basis of the new electoral divisions.
The holding of the annual enumeration cannot be cancelled except by an Act the introduction of which must be preceded by a resolution approved by a majority of the members of each parliamentary group within the meaning of the Standing Orders of the National Assembly.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, where the annual enumeration occurs before the expiry of three months from publication of the list of electoral divisions in the Gazette officielle du Québec, the enumeration, instead of being held in the annual enumeration period prescribed in the Election Act, shall be held within six months after that period.
