a) Elections that were to be held on Monday have been cancelled.
This is correct. In the past, the elections were to have been held. They no longer are to be held.
(b) Elections that are be be held on Monday have been cancelled.
This makes no sense. If the elections are to be held then they have not been cancelled. You cannot both cancel and hold the elections.
