SEC Nimmagadda issues fresh orders on recounting of votes
After receiving several complaints regarding recounting of votes in the ongoing panchayat elections, State Election Commissioner Nimmagadda Ramesh Kumar on Friday issued fresh orders. Returning officer has to take up recounting if margin of votes between the winning candidate and the one who sought recounting was less.
The SEC stated that recounting of votes will be allowed only for one time. The commission also directed to record the process of recounting in sensitive and hypersensitive panchayats. Returning officer has to allow recounting even if the complaint raised by opposition-backed candidate.
