IMPHAL, October 20: The Joint Students`™ Coordination Committee has warned today that any candidate ignoring the election code of conduct of the Students`™ Union 2015-16 election will be asked to withdraw their nomination and even if a candidate wins the election by ignoring the code, the candidate will be asked to resign.
Speaking to media persons at a press meet today at the AMSU Headquarter, convenor of the committee Jayentakumar Khuman said the all candidates must abide by the election code of conduct.
He also appealed to the other student organisations which are outside the ambit of the committee to respect the code of conduct.
Anyone disregarding the code of conduct will be held responsible for any untoward incident arising out of it, he said.
He said the JSCC will open a college election monitoring cell on October 24 at the Johnstone Higher Secondary School adding that anyone having any complaint on the matter can approach the cell.
Elaborating on the election code of conduct 2015-16, he said all kinds of party, picnic, cinema, charity showing support to a candidate should be cancelled and candidates should not engage in distribution of pamphlets or posters or routines.
Jayenta also said that candidates should distribute money or any other items in connection to the election and that none of the monitoring cell members could be candidate, inner agent, proposer, seconder or counting agent for the elections.
