Dated Aizawl, the 31st May, 2024


                        Whereas, there is every likelihood that during the course of campaign in the By-Election to Sakawrtuichhun Local Council, 2024 to be held on 25th June, 2024 (Tuesday), the Political Parties may mobilize their supporters, including from outside the Local Council Constituency, in order to bolster their 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 Local Council Constituency and who are not voters from the Local Council 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-section (1) of Section 3 of the Mizoram Municipalities (Election to Local Councils) Rules, 2015 as amended 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 PM of 23.06.2024 and 5:00 PM of 25.06.2024, no campaign should take place within Sakawrtuichhun Local Council Constituency where By-Election is being held and Political functionaries/ Party workers/ Procession functionaries/ Campaign functionaries etc., who have been brought from outside the Local Council Constituency and who are not voters of the Local Council Constituency concerned, should not continue to remain present in the said Local Council Constituency.


            The Commission, further, orders that the District Administration and Police Administration shall ensure that all such functionaries leave Sakawrtuichhun Local Council Constituency immediately after the Campaign period is over at 5:00 PM of 23.06.2024. This Order shall be brought to the notice of all Political Parties, Candidates and their Agents in order to enable them to comply.
