The official agent of an authorized party may, so long as no candidate of the party has filed his nomination paper for an office and before the expiry of the period prescribed for the filing of nomination papers, authorize election expenses to be attributed to the eventual candidate of the party for that office.
If the party presents no candidate for the office contemplated in the first paragraph, the election expenses are attributed to the candidate of the party for the office of mayor or, failing such a candidate, to each of its candidates for the office of councillor, in equal proportions.
