Oct. 21: The Election Commission has issued a seven-point directive again to political parties and candidates to follow the election code of conduct.
The EC said that it had received reports of parties and candidates violating the election code of conduct – organizing mass meetings and using government resources in their election campaign. The poll panel reminded the federal and provincial ministers that they should not use government resources for campaigning.
It has asked the candidates not to hang parties’ flags and election symbols at private and public places. If election code of conduct was violated, they would face punishment and their candidacies would be cancelled, the EC warned.
