The move follows observations of declining standards in political campaign discourse during recent elections. The ECI has also warned Star Campaigners and candidates of potential repercussions if they repeat previous election violations, known as Model Code of Conduct (MCC) violations.

The ECI will use these indirect MCC violations to revise future notices regarding time and content for upcoming elections.

This will apply to all phases and geographical areas of the General Election to Lok Sabha and four State Legislative Assemblies, in determining ‘repeat’ offenses.
