EC issues 29 instructions for transparent counting in UP polls

Not taking any chances, the Election Commission has made all necessary arrangements to ensure that the counting of votes for the Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections on Friday, is transparent.

Lucknow, May 10 : Not taking any chances, the Election Commission has made all necessary arrangements to ensure that the counting of votes for the Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections on Friday, is transparent.

Chief Election Commissioner N Gopalaswamy, in a letter to the State Chief Electoral Officer, has given detailed instructions regarding the arrangements at counting centers and on the management of the counting process, including security arrangements.

In order to ensure a higher level of transparency in the counting process, the Election Commission has issued a twenty-nine-point instruction through the letter.

All District Election Officers and Returning Officers have been directed to make adequate arrangements.

These instructions have also been sent to all observers so that they have time to familiarise themselves and take action accordingly.

Counting supervisors and counting assistants would be posted randomly, in such a way that the counting official comes to know of the Assembly Constituency and the table assigned to them only at the time of their arrival at the counting center on the day of the counting.

Photo-identity cards would be issued to all counting supervisors and persons in charge.

The randomisation process would be videographed for the record.

The EC has made arrangements for counterchecking the results. For instance, if any discrepancy is found between the result obtained from the table and that ascertained through random checking by the observer, then the result of that round for each table shall be verified again from Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs).

The EC has decided to take severe disciplinary action against the erring staff.

The result provided by such staff in the preceding rounds would be checked again in presence of the observer and corrected sheets prepared wherever necessary, the letter said.

Arrangements for filling in the shortage of staff have also been made.

Wherever, adequate Central Government staff is not available, the shortfall will be made good by the Divisional Commissioner by mobilising required staff from neighbouring districts within the Division.

The District Election Officers through Chief Electoral Officers have been asked to ensure strict implementation of the instructions.
