413. Where the authorization of an independent candidate is withdrawn at his request, the sums and assets remaining from those he obtained as a candidate shall be remitted to the chief electoral officer by the persons holding them not later than 10 days after they have been notified of the withdrawal. In such case, the second paragraph of section 408 applies, except subparagraph 3, with the necessary modifications. The chief electoral officer shall liquidate the assets and remit to the treasurer the proceeds of the liquidation and the sums that were remitted to him. The treasurer shall deposit the proceeds and the sums into the general fund of the municipality.
Where the authorization of an independent candidate is withdrawn otherwise than at his request, sections 408 to 411 apply, adapted as required. However, in the case referred to in the second paragraph of section 407, the chief electoral officer shall, after payment of the debts, pay the surplus to the party the candidate has joined.
