Election Commission rejects AAP's plea to use ballot papers in MCD elections
New Delhi, Mar 14 (IBNS): The Election Commission on Tuesday rejected the plea of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) to use ballot papers over Electronic Voting Machines in the upcoming Municipal Corporation election of Delhi.
Earlier in the day, the AAP pleaded to the Election Commission to use ballot papers over EVMs for fair election.
Rejecting the plea, the election commissioner in a press conference said: "EVMs have been used in earlier elections and they are secured. We cannot change the rules now since the elections are declared already. It needs the change of rules."
