When we are using word ordered, the verb usage must be to+ verb.
Also, 'their' which is a plural pronoun has a plural antecedent "local officials"

Option E is the correct answer.

Step 1: "To control…ordered…should censor" is the wrong sequence of verb tenses. We need a verb that communicates future action. Also, "to" normally follows "order".

Step 2: Eliminate (B), (C), and (D). Correct choice (E) uses the phrase "ordered to censor".
