This is for the information of the general public that election campaign shall be permitted after the issuance of notification calling elections in line with the section 268 of the Election Act of the Kingdom of Bhutan. Recently, it has come to the notice of the Election Commission of Bhutan (ECB) that past campaign materials of the Political Parties are being widely shared via social media. The sharing of such campaign materials can be construed as election campaign and mislead the general public creating social disharmony in the community.
In view of the above, the ECB would like the Political Parties to be mindful that no campaign materials in any forms are shared until the announcement for the next elections is made. Further, general public is requested not to share such materials.
