Gopalakrishna Dwivedi has been appointed as new electoral officer of Andhra Pradesh (AP). He is replacing Sisodia. The sudden change of officials by the Central Election Commissioner (EC), is leading to a lot of speculation. Meanwhile, AP government was consulted before making the change it is said. It raised no objection and also suggested three names on request by the EC, one among which is Dwivedi. However, it is learnt that the change was made because YSRCP has requested for it. The party had complained that some three lakh voters were missing from the list.
