Be it enacted by the Lieutenant-Governor and House of Assembly in Legislative Session convened, as follows:

(2) Notwithstanding subsection (1) and the Statutes and Subordinate Legislation Act, the fact that writs respecting the by-elections to be held in the electoral districts of Trinity - Bay de Verde and Humber East were issued on November 3, 2014 but the proclamations respecting those by-elections were not published in the Gazette until November 4, 2014 does not invalidate those writs nor does it in any way affect the validity of the calling of those by-elections.
