Subject field(s)
  • Electoral Systems and Political Parties

Surplus funds transferred to the registered party may be, in subsequent elections, used to fund the campaigns of that party's endorsed candidates. Thus, endorsed candidates have a financial advantage over independent candidates, who must start from scratch with each new campaign.


  • Systèmes électoraux et partis politiques

Candidat qui n’est pas affilié à un parti politique.


En tant que candidat indépendant, vous n'êtes affilié à aucun parti ou à aucune équipe reconnue. Choisir cette option, c'est : jouir de l'entière liberté de votre programme électoral, de l'organisation de votre campagne électorale et de vos votes au conseil; être responsable du financement de votre campagne; organiser vous-même la publicité pour soutenir votre candidature.
