Section 43: Electoral Commission to consider whether electoral review is necessary

125.Section 43 places a duty on the Electoral Commission to consider whether or not an electoral review is necessary where a council has resolved to become subject to a scheme for partial-council elections. The Electoral Commission may decide a review is necessary where the number of councillors per ward is not the appropriate number of councillors as set out in section 13(5) of the Local Government Act 1992, which is amended by section 56 of this Act. If they decide that a review is necessary they can direct the Boundary Committee to conduct a review using their existing powers under section 13(3) of the Local Government Act 1992.
