What happens if there is a tie between candidates in the Municipal Elections?

If there is a tie, or if the difference between the first two candidates is less than 2% of the total number of votes, the Returning Officer does an administrative recount. If there is still a tie after the administrative recount the Returning officer will either choose a winner by draw if the candidates agree or apply for a recount by Justice of the Peace. If the Justice of the Peace conducts a recount and one candidate obtained a higher number of votes than any other, that candidate is declared elected.  If, on the other hand, there is still a tie in the number of votes, the Justice of the Peace will choose a winner by draw.
