AP High Court directs SEC not to use eWatch app till Feb 9
After hearing the arguments of petitioners and the lawyer of the State Election Commission (SEC), the AP High Court directed the SEC not to use the eWatch app till February 9. The High Court heard three petitions filed opposing the eWatch app in the ongoing gram panchayat elections citing that the app did not undergo a security audit.
The government lawyer has informed the High Court that it will take five days to receive a security audit certificate for the app. SEC’s lawyer brought to the notice of the court that the app is being used for receiving election-related complaints.
