Chandigarh, Apr 8 : In regard to the Model Code of Conduct ruled by ECI in March, Chandigarh Chief Electoral Office on Monday stated that no political advertisement is to be published in print media on 18th and 19th May unless it is pre-certified by the District MCMC committee constituted by the Chandigarh Administration.
