As we talk, the Model Code of Conduct (MCC) stands enforced with this announcement. The Commission has already made elaborate arrangements for ensuring the effective implementation of MCC guidelines, the CEC said.

While the Congress-led administration of Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi now governs the state, the BJP and Aam Aadmi Party will be surprise candidates in this election, even though the Congress looks to retain power.

Congress has suffered severe jolt after many of its leaders jumped ship. AICC in-charge Harish Chaudhary had announced that Congress will contest the upcoming state polls in 2022 without a Chief Ministerial candidate and the election will be fought under the leadership of state Congress president Navjot Singh Sidhu.
