Election Commission: Common Symbol for Registered-Unrecognized Political Parties

Subject to certain conditions, the Election Commission has permitted Registered-Unrecognised Political Parties to have a common symbol as a one-time offer during general elections either to Lok Sabha or to a State Assembly.

  • Decision taken via an amendment in the Election Symbols (Reservation and Allotment) Order, 1968.

The allowance comes due to the requests by various political parties, which had also moved to the Supreme Court, looking for a course to the EC to deem making apt alterations in the Symbol Order.
