Repoll in Darjeeling booths ordered

Posted by Ramesh Khati on June 30, 2009

KOLKATA, 29 June : The state election commission has ordered a repoll in five booths of Asansol and Darjeeling after receiving adverse reports from the observers and returning officers. Repolls in these five booths will be held tomorrow.
In municipal areas, re-polling has been ordered in three booths of the Asansol Municipal Corporation. Similarly, repolling for two booths of the Champasari gram panchayat under the Matigara block of Darjeeling district has been also ordered.
Officials of the state election commission said regarding the Matigara block, where panchayat elections were being held, wrong ballot papers were sent to two of the polling booths ~ booths 29 and 29A located in the Amiya Pal Chowdhury Juniopr High School ~ because of which repolling had been ordered.
While electronic voter machines will be used for the polls in the municipal areas, ballot papers are used in case of elections in panchayat areas.
