Anyone violating the electoral code of conduct will be punished, he warns
The Election Commission has directed the deputy commissioners and divisional commissioners to remove all election campaign materials, including posters, archways and gates, from public places within the next seven days.
Election Commission Secretary Helaluddin Ahmed issued the directives in a meeting on Friday in Dhaka, reports UNB.
“Campaigning will not be allowed until the allocation of electoral symbols," he said.
Helaluddin said those who have used various materials, including posters, leaflets, archways and gates, for campaigning, have to remove them at their own initiative.
He elaborated that since the election schedule has been announced, no rally, procession or torch procession will be allowed now.
“Action will be taken if processions are brought out violating the electoral code of conduct,” he added.
