Thiruvananthapuram: The state election commissioner V Bhaskaran informed that if any complaint is registered for nuisance in public or private spaces over display of posters or slogans, the district election officer should issue notice for the immediate removal of the same.
If no action is taken by the political party or the candidate concerned, district election officer should take action and the expense for the same should be added to that of the candidate.
If there is no obstruction in displaying ads at public spaces, all political parties and candidates should be given equal opportunities. No public space should be exclusively reserved for any party or candidate.
Flags, banners, posters and cutouts should not be placed creating nuisance to public. The expense for ads should be included in the expense of the particular candidate, Bhaskaran added.
