EC sends observers to West Bengal for third time

Written by: Staff

New Delhi, Feb 23 (UNI) Election Commission observers will visit the assembly poll-bound West Bengal for the third time for a week from March 1 to assess the post-final publication of the voters list.

While one observer each will visit 18 districts of West Bengal, two observers will camp at Kolkata, an Election Commission Spokesperson said.

The final electoral rolls in West Bengal were published yesterday. But the commission had earlier announced that the process of updating of the rolls and deletion of dead and shifted voters would continue even after the publication of the final list.

The observers would be visiting the districts to collect feedback from the field by interacting with political parties and voters.

They would look into other electoral issues like distribution of voter i-cards in which the commission had pointed out irregularities earlier.

The observers, who would be in the state till March 7, would debrief the commission on March 9.

The state would go to assembly polls in April/May along with Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Assam and Pondicherry.
