SC dismisses review petition on VVPAT
Author: Desk May 7, 2019
The Supreme Court on Tuesday dismissed the plea filed by 21 Opposition leaders seeking review of its order on random matching of EVMs with VVPAT slips during Lok Sabha polls.
Rejecting opposition’s plea to verify at least 50 per cent of EVMs with VVPAT slips in the ongoing loksabha elections, the apex court said that they are not inclined to modify their earlier order. The apex court had on 8th April directed the Election Commission to do random matching of EVMs with VVPAT slips at five polling booths per assembly seat rather than at one polling booth.
