Since the beginning of March our Parish Council has been posting curated content from the Electoral Commission regarding Voter ID.
Some of the posts from our Facebook page were shared to active local Facebook groups which is great for our engagement targets.
A district council candidate has commented on the post with his campaign content, views on voter ID, leaflet, etc. One of the competing candidates has now spoke to us saying that we are breaching purdah rules by allowing his comments on our shared post.
We (the parish council) haven't "liked" or commented on the content, so in my view we are still apolitical.
I've checked the purdah guidelines but this scenario does not seem to apply. What are everyone's thoughts?
