I’ve seen an email in recent days which has some arguably contradictory points:
Purdah ensures that election parties are able to have “clear airwaves”. Purdah means that only “Urgent or Essential” communications may go out on our public social media platforms until after elections. If you are unsure what categorises Urgent or Essential please check with me
- There should be no postings of a political nature.
- Any ongoing campaigns must now either pause or cease.
If ongoing campaigns are not political in nature, why can’t they continue?
(this is a genuine question for those more knowledgeable about election law than me, or if it is just HQAC being massively overkill!)
