What is an election campaign?
It is a time period when free and fair
discussion takes place between
different political parties, when
candidates contact their voters.
In our country
,election campaigns
take place for a two-
week period
between the
announcement of
the final list of
candidates and the
date of polling.
In election
campaigns, political
parties try to focus
public attention on
some big issues.
They want to attract
the public to that
issue and get them to
vote for their party
on that basis.
All the political parties in
our country have agreed to
a Model
CODE OF CONDUCT
for election campaigns.
There are some of the successful
slogans given by the different
political parties.
The congress party led by Indira Gandhi
gave this slogan in Lok Sabha elections
of 1971.
This slogan was given by Janata
Party in the Lok Sabha election
held in 1977.
This slogan was used by N.T. Rama
Rao, the leader of the Telugu Desam
Party in Andhra Pradesh Assembly
elections in 1983.
This slogan was used by Left Front in
the West Bengal assembly elections
held in 1977.
In a democracy it is best
to leave political parties
and candidates free to
conduct their election
campaigns the way they
want to.
It is necessary to regulate
campaign to ensure that
every political party and
candidate gets a fair and
equal chance to compete.
According to our election law, no party
or candidate can :
1) Bribe or threaten voters .

2) Appeal to them in the name of caste and


religion .

3) Use government resources for election


campaign.
4) Spend more than Rs.25 lakh in a
constituency for Lok Sabha election or
Rs.10 lakh in a constituency in an Assembly
election.
