High-level committee submits report on 'One Nation One Election' to Prez Murmu

| @indiablooms | 14 Mar 2024, 07:00 pm

New Delhi: The high-level committee on 'One Nation One Election', headed by former President Ram Nath Kovind submitted its report on simultaneous polls to President Droupadi Murmu at Rashtrapati Bhavan on Thursday.

Union Home Minister Amit Shah, former leader of the Opposition in the Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad, former Finance Commission chairman N.K. Singh, and former Lok Sabha Secretary General Subhash Kashyap were also present while submitting the report to the President.

The report contains 18,626 pages and has been prepared after extensive consultations with stakeholders, experts and research work of 191 days.

On September 22, the government constituted a committee headed by former President Ram Nath Kovind to explore the possibility of 'One Nation, One Election', holding simultaneous Lok Sabha and state Assembly elections.

According to the reports, the Centre is also planning to introduce the ‘One Nation, One Election’ Bill in Parliament.

The ‘One Nation One Election’ is not a new concept for the country.

India had simultaneously held Lok Sabha and Assembly elections, in 1951-52, 1957, 1962 and 1967.
