The Central Election Commission shall work out the amount of the subsidy every fiscal year, and notify the candidate to prepare the receipt and receive the subsidy from the Central Election Commission within 1 month, till the tenure of the current session of the members of the Legislative Yuan expires. For the candidates or political parties who do not receive the subsidy for campaign expenses within the specified time limit, the election commissions shall hasten them to receive it within 3 months; the subsidy not received within the specified period is regarded as abandonment. The subsidies required in Paragraphs One and Six shall be budgeted pursuant to the provisions of Article 13.
