Authorities' permission required for election boycott pickets


The election
boycott agitation provision will not be removed from the Election Code. However, it
will be removed from the paragraph dealing with pre-election agitation. Thus,
boycott campaigns will have to be conducted like any other mass event and will
not benefit from the simplified procedure used during elections. It means that boycott
organizers will have to ask local authorities for permission to conduct such actions
and wait for approval within up to 15 days.
