“The Commission has taken the decision to curb the continued breach of the Electoral Act and the Broadcasting Code on Political Broadcast.
The Commission is particularly irked by the unauthorized declaration of results by the state Governor in the state broadcast station.

“The station will remain shut down until further notice.”
