    To be Clear. ONLY events that include ALL candidates are Hustings. If one candidate is REFUSED the opportunity (as opposed to turning it down) then the meeting becomes a Promotional meeting. The costs of hosting and promoting such meetings must be divided by the number of participants and included in each candidates election expenses (regardless who actually pays for venue hire, advertising or live streaming)

  • OneNI – I think we should both defer to the Electoral Commission’s guidance on Hustings for what qualifies as a selective or a non-selective hustings … speaking as someone who spent time seeking advice from EC on the issue!
