    9.2 The caretaker period

    The caretaker conventions operate from the dissolution of the Legislative Assembly until the election result is clear or, in the event of a change of government, until the new government is appointed. However, it is also accepted that some care should be exercised in the period between the announcement of the election and the dissolution of the Legislative Assembly.
