EC instructs poll machinery ahead of 5 state elections

The Election Commission (EC) has directed the poll machinery ahead of the elections in 5 states that either cover or remove photographs of political leaders on all hoardings and advertisements which seek to project the achievements of any living political functionary or political party, as per the media reports.

The commission gave these fresh directions by reiterating its instructions issued on December 12, 2004 after the chief electoral officer of Goa raised the issue after the election schedule was announced on January 4, said the PTI report.

The poll watchdog said photos in advertisements or hoardings of similar type should also be removed or ‘covered suitably’ so that spirit of its instructions is fully complied with.

It, however, made it clear that hoardings put up by the government which convey general message to the masses on family planning or social welfare schemes may be allowed to be displayed, added the media reports.
