EC-Mamata spat

Comment (7)   ·   print   ·   T  T  
Has the Election Commission's firm stand strengthened democratic process?
Can't say

Political leaders those spreading communal, caste and partisan ideas just for the vote bank but in long term these hateful speech/ideas stunted the thinking of common person. So it is highly imperative for the election commission to charge high on these leaders which is in result act as deterrent to other negative leaders.

I expect that still our EC should be straight forward and strong with Democratic . recently TC CEC said that candidate can campaign after 10 pm without disturbing common people. but after two day CEC saying that no provision for the candidate to involve campaign after 10 pm, why this controversy? no stable statement from TN EC, its confusing people even a political parties.

I have not seen EC being very rigid and stringent on any political
party. EC is just a Tokenism.

Election Commission's firm stand on the transfer issue sends a strong
signal to the state and central governments that they mean business
and will not brook any kind of disobedience or dilly-dallying with
their diktats aimed at securing the poll process from unscrupulous
forces that want to vitiate the process.Had they buckled to Mamata's
words of fury,it would have sent a message of a weak EC and the entire
political spectrum cutting across party lines will start defying the
rules and codes of conduct enunciated by the EC for the smooth conduct
of polls.It would then be very difficult to rein in these elements
ever waiting to play spoilsport.By their robust riposte to Mamata's
threat of defiance of their orders,EC has come out more strong and
more credible.

The world's largest democracy is indeed a beacon of democracy for emerging democracies to emulate.

model code of conduct which is meant for the parties not to violate any rule seems to be like just a joke, frequently violated by parties.despite possessing quasi-judicial powers it has not shown its teeth in containing the candidates making hate speeches and appealing votes on religion basis.
