The Election Commission has barred the political parties, candidates and other organizations from publishing advertisement in print media on coming Friday and Saturday without its prior approval in Gujarat. The first phase of voting in the state will take place on Saturday.
The poll body has asked them to get the advertisements pre-certified from the Media Certification and Monitoring Committee at the state and district levels before their publication.
The Commission said the decision has been taken in view of past instances of advertisements of offending and misleading nature in print media on such occasions which vitiate the elections.
In its direction to the Gujarat Chief Electoral Officer , the Election Commission asked to issue directions to all political parties, candidates and newspapers in this regard.
