BJP forced EC change party registration norms: AAP

Friday, 14 January 2022 | Staff Reporter | NEW DELHI/punjab

AAP national spokesperson Raghav Chadha alleged that the Election Commission is making major changes in the process of registration of the political parties under the pressure of the BJP to prevent the formation of the Aam Aadmi Party government in Punjab. “The Election Commission is reducing the 30 day objection period to 7 days to make special changes for the registration of a special political party. Despite the imposition of the code of conduct, the EC is going to register this political party just 25 days before the election. What was the need to change the laws overnight to register a particular political party,” he asked? Chadha further said “It is for the first time in India’s history that the Election Commission of India, the body responsible for upholding our democracy by conducting free and fair elections, is providing special treatment by bringing about two major changes in the registration process of a political party.”

“This is the same election commission whose sole responsibility is to establish a fair and democratically elected government in our country, a body which we consider to be a crucial pillar of Indian democracy. I will first elaborate on the two changes that the EC is introducing and later go into the politics and power play of the matter,” he added.

He said “The two changes that Election Commission of India is bringing about includes: one, there is a month-long objection period prior to the registration of any political party in India, during which people can raise their grievances and objections against the establishment of said political party to the Election Commission.

This period lasts 30 days. However, giving special treatment this time, the Election Commission has shortened this objection period to a mere 7 days, reducing it by more than one-third of the original timeframe, to accelerate the registration of a special party.”
