44. So soon as any municipality or part of a municipality has been annexed to a city or town according to the provisions of this act, it shall remain subject to the provisions of the various acts, by-laws, rules and regulations in force at the time of the annexation or thereafter in virtue of the powers conferred by law upon the corporation of the city or town, except insofar as such provisions shall be incompatible with the conditions of the by-law under the authority whereof the annexation was effected.
For the purpose of determining a right conferred by section 115, 121 or 122, any period during which a person meets the requirements of such sections in the annexed territory before the annexation, is considered a period spent in the annexing municipality from the beginning, if it is still running at the time of the annexation and as long as it continues in such annexing municipality.
The second paragraph also applies in the case of a candidate, the consort of a candidate or an elector in respect of whom an annexation effective before 27 June 1975 would otherwise have interrupted the period during which such person had to meet the requirements of such sections in one and the same municipality for the purposes of an election held after such date.
