ISLAMABAD: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has issued a code of conduct for by-elections to 33 seats of the National Assembly.

The by-elections on 33 National Assembly seats will be held on March 16.

According to the code of conduct issued by the Election Commission, political parties, candidates, and polling agents will not speak against the Pakistan Army, judiciary, and ideology of Pakistan.

The code of conduct states that political parties, candidates, and polling agents will fully implement the rules of the Election Commission regarding the conduct of elections, and giving gifts to a person for participating in the election or withdrawing from the election is a corrupt practice.

The Election Commission said that full support will be provided by law enforcement agencies for the security of election equipment and staff on the day of the election. Political parties will take steps to ensure maximum participation of women on election day.

According to the code of conduct, political parties and polling agents will prevent their candidates from marking or tearing the ballot paper on election day. A candidate seeking help from a government or non-government official would be considered corrupt.
