438ZB   Election of mayor during suspension period
(1)  An election of the mayor by councillors is not required to be held during a period in which the council is suspended under this Part.
(2)  However, any election that would, but for this section, be required to be held during a period in which the council is suspended must instead be held within 14 days after the suspension ends.
(3)  Subsection (2) does not apply if the suspension ends because the council is dismissed or if an ordinary election of councillors is held before the suspension ends.
