Three more booths in Kerala go for re-poll on Sunday

Three more booths in Kerala go for re-poll on Sunday
Thiruvananthapuram, May 17 (IANS) Kerala Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) Teeka Ram Meena on Friday ordered re-polling in two booths in the Kannur Lok Sabha constituency and in one booth at Kasargode on May 19.

On Thursday, Meena had ordered re-poll in three booths in Kasargode and one in the Kannur constituencies, and with this, seven polling booths in Kerala will see re-polling on account of complaints of bogus voting.

This is the first time in the state that a re-poll has been ordered for reasons of bogus voting.

The booths where voting will take place on Sunday are 52 and 53 in the Dharmadam assembly segment represented by Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan under the Kannur Lok Sabha constituency, while booth number 48 in Trikaripur falls under the Kasargode Lok Sabha seat.


Starting April 27, TV channels in the state started airing visuals of people engaged in bogus voting, followed by a series of complaints from both the Congress and the CPI-M, which led the CEO to order the re-poll.

Meanwhile, the Congress candidate from Kasargode, Rajmohan Unnithan, who hit the campaign trail on Friday once again, welcomed the CEO's decision.

His CPI-M rival, K.P.Satish Chandran, is rushing back to his constituency for some last-minute campaigning before its scheduled close on Friday evening.

Meena is currently looking into complaints from other polling booths.
