The letter, written by PPP’s Secretary-Basic Syed Nayyer Hussain Bokhari, referred to the ECP’s code of conduct through which it barred the president and governors of the provinces from collaborating in election marketing campaign referring to the Senate ballot in any method in any way and directed them to not use their respective workplaces in addition to homes in connection therewith.
The Election Fee on February 25 had issued a CoC (Code of Conduct) for political events, contesting candidates, election brokers, and voters for the Senate election.

“Despite the clear directions contained in the Code of Conduct, the governors of the provinces are often reported in the media to be holding meetings with various candidates for the Senate elections,” the PPP chief identified.
“It appears that either the governors have not read the CoC or they are willfully violating it. I will be grateful if the governors are asked to strictly observe the Code of Conduct and desist from using their offices and houses in connection with the Senate election due on March 3, 2021,” he said.
