The National Parliament Electoral Provisions Act (NPEPA) and the Political Parties Integrity Act (PPIA) are two key Solomon Islands legislation that outline a series of election offences. These include: bribery; threatening; undue influence; impersonating; illegal voting; false statements; and intimidation. Each offence is punishable by a fine and/or imprisonment. Under the PPIA, it is an offence for a non-contesting party at an election to campaign unless it holds an election activity licence issued by the Registrar of Political Parties. It is also an offence for a registered political party to fail to report the source of its campaign funding within two weeks after the election.
