No. B.11011/1/2024-SEC/MADC/62







 Dated Aizawl, the 12th June, 2024


                        Whereas, there is every likelihood that during the course of campaign in the By-Election to 07-Chakhei MDC Constituency within Mara Autonomous District Council to be held on 28th June, 2024, the Political Parties may mobilize their supporters, including from outside the Constituency, in order to bolster that campaign; and


                        Whereas, the Commission is of the view that continued presence of Political functionaries / Party workers / Procession functionaries / Campaign functionaries etc., who have been brought from outside the Constituency and who are not voters from the Constituency concerned after Campaign period ends may undermine the atmosphere for free and fair poll;


                        Now, therefore, in exercise of the powers conferred under sub-rule (1) of Rule 151 read with sub-rule (5) of Rule 7 and sub-rule (1) of Rule 158 of the Mara Autonomous District Council (Constitution, Conduct of business, etc.) Rules, 2002, as amended, and with a view to ensuring free and fair elections, the State Election Commission hereby orders that within the period of 48 hours ending with the hours fixed for the close of Poll, i.e. between 5:00 p.m. of 26th June, 2024 and 5:00 p.m. of 28th June, 2024, no campaign should take place within 07-Chakhei MDC Constituency area where By-Election is being held and Political functionaries/Party workers/Procession functionaries/Campaign functionaries etc., who have been brought from outside the Constituency and who are not voters of the Constituency concerned, should not continue to remain present in the said Constituency.


                        The Commission, further, orders that the District Administration and Police Administration shall ensure that all such functionaries leave the Constituency immediately after the Campaign period is over at 5:00 p.m. of 26th June, 2024. This Order shall be brought to the notice of all Political Parties, Candidates and their Agents in order to enable them to comply.
