The Tamil Nadu State Election Commission (SEC) on Tuesday said it was looking into complaints of alleged irregularities in Monday’s first phase of polling for local bodies.
State Election Commissioner S Ayyar is looking into complaints in Chennai Corporation, an official release said, even as opposition parties had demanded re-polling in many booths alleging booth-capturing and bogus voting by ruling AIADMK.
Mr. Ayyar held an enquiry with representatives of political parties and their candidates and verified documents, it said.
The Opposition had alleged large-scale irregularities by AIADMK when polling for 10 corporations and many other local bodies were held across the State.
Mr. Ayyar had on Monday dismissed as “rumours,” reports of irregularities.
Among those who had complained to him were DMK’s Mayoral Candidate M Subramaniam.
Political parties, including CPI(M) have demanded re-polling in many booths.
