Kejriwal urges EC to issue opinion poll guidelines

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal in a letter on Monday demanded that the Election Commission (EC) provide guidelines on conducting and broadcasting opinion polls.

“The AAP demands that the EC should issue clear guidelines to organisations conducting these polls and print/electronic media which intends to publish/telecast such polls for fixing,” says the letter.

Kejriwal said the AAP does not favour a blanket ban on opinion polls, but would like to request the EC to take steps to ensure that a code of conduct is followed for telecast/publication.
