DCA notifies poll date, model code from Nov 21

SHILLONG: The model code of conduct for the December 13 by-polls to seven vacant district council seats will come into effect from November 21, the day the filing of nominations starts.
District Council Affairs Minister Prestone Tynsong said on Tuesday that the government was committed to ensuring model code of conduct in the same pattern of the Election Commission.
“The model code of conduct will come into effect from November 21”, Tynsong said.
The expenditure for holding by-polls to seven District Council constituencies is Rs 2.15 crore, Tynsong said.
Earlier in the day, the District Councils Affairs Department notified the date for polls after the Governor on Monday approved the calendar fixed by the government.
Tynsong hoped that no political parties will field legislators to contest the posts of MDCs in the by-election following the amended dual posts Act that came into effect from October 1.
