This briefing covers some essential issues for local authorities during the pre-election period: the implications of the publicity code, the position of elected members, and use of premises by candidates. It draws attention to guidance from the Equalities & Human Rights Commission and Electoral Commission that will be useful for corporate officers and elected members, and publicises a statement by Race Equality Matters that suggests standards for adoption by candidates and public bodies.
