Bangalore, Jan 10 (UNI) Chief Election Commissioner N Gopalaswamy today fixed the responsibility for preparation of error-free voters list, ahead of the election to Karnataka Assembly, on political parties.

Speaking to reporters here, Mr Gopalaswamy said the political parties would be given two separate lists on February seven for deletion and additions to be made in the final list.

''They will be given two weeks time for raising objections to removing and adding names of the voters for the final list to be prepared on March ten,'' he said.

''It will be the responsibility of the political parties to ensure the final list did not contain discrepancies any more as the EC has adopted a new mechanism for producing error-free list,'' he said.

To a question on whether the elections would be postponed in case of a delay in the implementation of the report of Mr Justice Kuldeep Singh who headed Delimitation Commission, he said the EC did not work on the basis of 'ifs and buts' and as of now, it would conduct the elections before May 28.
