22 Opposition Parties Offer 2 Free Advices To EC

Representatives of 22 Opposition Parties met the Election Commission on Tuesday to offer two Free Advices ahead of the counting on May 23rd.

1) VVPATs in five selected polling booths in each Assembly Constituency has to be counted first.


2) If there is any error during the VVPAT Slips counting at the 5 Booths, Election Commission must count VVPATs of all polling stations in that particular Assembly Segment.

Opposition Parties say, 'Supreme Court ordered counting of VVPAT Slips from 5 polling booths. If there is any error in this sample, That means EVM tampering has happened and all the VVPATs in the constituency has to be counted. It's a no brainer'.

However, The Election Commission refrained from offering any clear assurance over these two demands of the Opposition Parties.
