Vote count: Election Commission’s action is satisfactory – Highcourt opinion

The Election Commission of India is satisfied with the move by the Election Commission for the local body polls.

Voting for rural local bodies in Tamil Nadu takes place on January 2. The state election commission has taken no action despite complaints that the ruling party has been abusing it during the election.

It is the duty of the State Election Commission to keep the ballot boxes secure and to conduct honest and fair ballots.

When the votes for the four posts are placed in the same box as a Panchayat Member, Panchayat Chief, Panchayat Union Member and District Panchayat member, the Election Commission should be strictly adhered to in order to ensure that there are no irregularities.

The police must be ordered to provide adequate security to the centers where the ballot boxes will be placed until the ballot count is completed. The surveillance camera must monitor all procedures, such as ballot counting and security, and record video of each ballot.
