Common symbols for unrecognised party candidates

The Election Commission has accepted the demand of two registered unrecognised political parties in Himachal Pradesh and granted them the concession of allotting a common symbol to their candidates in the November 4 Assembly polls.

The Commission has allotted the election symbol of 'Telephone' to candidates of Himachal Lokhit Party, which has fielded its candidates in all the 68 assembly constituencies in the state and ‘Television’ as symbol for candidates of Himachal Swabhiman Party, which has fielded candidates in 45 constituencies.

Unrecognised political parties are normally not allowed a common symbol for their candidates. This concession has been done by EC under the provisions of para 10B of the Election Symbols (Reservation and Allotment) Order, 1968.
