160.1. During the period beginning at 5:00 p.m. 35 days before polling day in a general election and ending when the majority of the candidates elected to the office of commissioner for seats open for nominations at that election have been declared elected, the council of commissioners or the executive committee shall not sit unless a fortuitous event necessitating its intervention occurs, or to comply with an obligation imposed by law. Deliberations during such a sitting shall pertain only to such event.
If the majority of the candidates elected to the office of commissioner for seats open for nominations at the election have not been declared elected before the fifth day following polling day, the provisions of the first paragraph cease to apply from the beginning of that day.
