Political parties urged to follow rules and regulations on election campaigns, code of conduct

A letter urging candidates to follow the directives during their election campaigns and adhere to a code of conduct signed on 26 June has been sent to all political parties, said the Union Election Commission Monday.
According to the letter, the 60-day campaign season will begin from 6 am on 8 September to 12 pm on 6 November.  The UEC said that candidates are allowed to put up their campaign posters in the public areas in accord with law, prescribed rules and regulations, orders and directives after seeking the permission from respective city or township development committees. But, the commission warned that candidates who failed to remove their campaign posters until 12 pm on 6 November will have to pay expenses on removal of posters.
