EC revises guidelines for Assembly Polls; Lifts 50% cap on political rallies, road shows
In view of the decline in COVID cases in poll-bound states, the Election Commission has relaxed the restriction of using only 50 percent capacity of space for political meetings and rallies. Political parties and candidates can now hold their meetings and rallies subject to State Disaster Management Authority regulations.
Commission has also allowed Road Shows subject to SDMA regulations and with prior permission of district authorities.
All other existing provisions related to electioneering shall continue to operate. The decision was taken in EC’s periodic review meeting of the status of COVID in the country and specially in the poll-bound states.
