Purdah 22 March – 02 May 2019

Published: 25 February 2019

Purdah is the term used to describe the pre-election period, between the time an election is announced and the date the election is held. During that period central and local government are subject to certain restrictions. For local government, the restrictions relate to communications activity and are designed to ensure that councils cannot be accused of bias. District, town and parish council elections are being held on Thursday 2 May this year. The pre-election, or Purdah period, will run from Friday 22 March to 10pm on Thursday 2 May 2019.

  • During Purdah we will:
  • Give no publicity to matters which are politically controversial
  • Make no reference to election candidates in our press releases or social media
  • Not issue photographs of candidates or hold press photo opportunities or launch events featuring any candidates
  • Not post on our social media platforms about any matters which are politically controversial
  • Remove any visitor posts on our social media which are politically controversial
