Ahead of EC's all-party meet; opp'n parties call remote voting machine proposal 'sketchy', 'not concrete'

A day before EC's meeting on demonstration of remote voting machine prototype, most of the opposition parties have opposed the proposal

Most of the Opposition parties have decided to oppose the Election Commission's proposal on remote electronic voting machine (RVM) as it is sketchy and not concrete, senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh said on Sunday.

He made the remarks after a meeting of Opposition parties that was attended by leaders of the Congress, JD(U), CPI, CPI(M), National Conference, JMM among others.

Singh said there are huge political anomalies in the proposal for remote voting machine with things like the definition of migrant labourers not clear.

The meeting came a day before the Election Commission showcases the remote electronic voting machine (RVM) prototype for migrant voters to representatives of political parties.

The poll panel has invited eight recognised national parties and 57 recognised state parties for a demonstration on Monday morning.

If implemented after stakeholder consultations, a RVM would enable migrant voters to vote from remote polling stations.
