New Delhi: The Election Commission will manage their “EVM challenge” start June 3, 2017 whenever Political Parties tend to be asked to show EVMs using the EC or those put throughout the previous Assembly Election could possibly be interfered with, Chief Election Commissioner Nasim Zaidi revealed on Saturday. The task is anticipated to stay available for 4-5 weeks.
The EСI confirmed the functional of an Electronic Voting Machine (ЕVM) as well as the Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trail System (VVPATs), while cleaning accusations which can be apart tampering.
“ECI throws opens the challenge to all national and state political parties from 3 June onward. The EVM Challenge is open to national and state parties. They can nominate 3 authorised persons and will need to confirm their interest by 5 pm on 26 May,” said Zaidi.
On the many questions asked by people on its transparency and reliability, have not yet submitted any eligible proof to support their concerns.
“No manipulation of EVMs is possible. Our EVMs have strong technological features and are tamper-proof. They are stand-alone machines which cannot be connected to the internet or any network at any point of time during polling,” Zaidi added.
BJP, CPI, CPI (M), AIADMK, DMK, NCP and JD(U) is in the strong support of production of EVMs and its functionality. Provided paper trail machines are attached to it, BSP, AAP, Trinamool Congress said the paper ballot system was better and more transparent.
Over last 20 years, ECI has successfully conducted 107 State Assembly elections and 3 Lok Sabha elections using EVM.
