The three parties vying for the executive office in Bali will only be allowed to begin formal campaigning on June 22, 2008, with all campaigning coming to a complete halt on July 6th, starting a 3 day "cooling off" period prior to election day.

In order to promote public order, a strict order of campaigning is in place regulating special areas and specific campaigning days for each set of candidates.
