ECP bans political rallies, orders removal of banners ahead of LG polls
LAHORE (Staff Report) - The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Monday moved to ban rallies and public gatherings of political parties ahead of upcoming Local Government elections in Punjab.

The meeting, which was also attended by the representatives of political parties and government officials, further ordered to take down banners and big sign boards on display in connection with the polls.

The meeting also decided to ensure complete implementation of the ECP’s code of conduct.

Candidates would, however, be allowed to hold corner meetings with prior permission of the commission. They were directed during the meeting to take down all billboards and banners to avoid a strict action.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) complained that Khawaja Ahmed Khan has been elected unopposed by pressurising the PTI candidate. They urged police officials to not harass and pressurise any candidates.

The capital city police officer (CCPO) Lahore assured the participants of the meeting that the police will remain completely impartial during the elections.
