Upcoming Assembly Elections in These Five States, Key Features

NEW DELHI: The Election Commission of India has officially unveiled the anticipated Assembly Elections schedule for the states of Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Mizoram, Telangana, and Chhattisgarh. This monumental electoral endeavor is set to involve a staggering 16.14 crore voters who will exercise their democratic right to select their respective state governments.

Here are the distinctive highlights for the forthcoming Assembly Elections, as outlined by the Election Commission:

Over 8000 polling booths managed by women.

Introduction of the cVigil Mobile App to promptly address any complaints, with a guaranteed response from authorities within 100 minutes.

"Know your candidates" initiative, requiring individuals with a criminal background to disclose their cases three times in newspapers throughout the campaign period.

Launch of the Integrated Election Expenditure Monitoring Portal (IEEMP) to facilitate compliance with election expenditure regulations, thereby ensuring adherence to the model code of conduct.

Mandating political parties to submit essential documents online, including Contribution Reports, Annual Audited Accounts, and Election Expenditure Statements.

The implementation of the Election Seizure Management System (ESMS), a technological platform for real-time updates on seizures made by various state and central enforcement agencies. This system enhances coordination and intelligence sharing among these agencies.

Enhanced scrutiny of inter-state border check posts, totaling 940 in number, to monitor and uphold the integrity of the polling process. These check posts will actively confiscate any illegal cash, liquor, or drugs intended to manipulate the fairness of the electoral process.

Deployment of female personnel at polling stations to prevent impersonation, coupled with the stipulation that polling teams can only utilize designated vehicles. These measures are designed to ensure the smooth operation of the electoral process.

The Election Commission of India has firmly asserted its commitment to crack down rigorously on any unlawful activities aimed at influencing voters. Immediate punitive actions will be taken, and in some instances, the candidacy of guilty politicians may be revoked as a consequence.
