Chief Election Commissioner Sunil Arora said the election will not be postponed by the tensions between India and Pakistan.
The term of the current federal government ends on June 3. The next Lok Sabha election will be held in May.
But after the Pulwama attack, unofficial reports emerged that EC would postpone the Lok Sabha polls due to the tensions in the border.
Chief Election Commissioner Sunil Arora said that the Lok Sabha elections will take place at the right time.
Two days back, the works for the election arrangement were held in Lucknow, the capital of the state of Uttar Pradesh
Sunil Arora, yesterday (March 1) spoke to reporters, “Election schedule will be announced at the press conference.
The election will not be postponed. Political parties count the electronic ballot machine as a football.
Electoral voting machines are used for elections over the past 20 years. Elections were held in Delhi in 4 months after the 2014 parliamentary elections.
Then there was a different kind of results. Whether knowingly or not the political parties use electronic voting machines like football.
For example, the election results say X, the political parties say the electronic voting machines are right.
But if Y the same political parties say, electronic voting machines are going wrong.
We note concerns raised in the voter-verified paper audit trail. Initially, there were some problems. But the arrangements will be made.
