Following the government's decision to postpone the local polls in province no 2 for September 18, the Election Commission has removed the Election code of conduct earlier in place for province no 2.

With the loosening of code of conduct, government proceedings like transfer, promotion, and appointment can continue without hindrance till another decision is made for the province 

However, the election code of conduct is still in place for provinces 1,5,7 where local elections are taking place on June 28.

 Meanwhile, Election Commission has urged the political parities not to use children during their election campaigns.

The Election Commission had sent letters to major politial parties reminding that using of children during election campaigns is against the election code of conduct.
