Shiv Sena would oppose the use of electronic voting machines (EVMs) and e-voting system during upcoming polls in 10 municipal corporations and 167 municipal councils in Maharashtra. A delegation of Sena leaders today met state election commissioner Neela Satyanarayan submitting a memorandum opposing use of EVMs and e-voting in the polls.
The commission had earlier said that it will set up a committee before introducing the e-voting system. “The EVMs create confusion in the whole voting process and among voters.
It becomes difficult for the voters to know whom they have cast votes. Instead, the old ballet papers should be used for better understanding of the voters,” Sena secretary, Anil Desai said.
In fact, many countries have given up use of EVMs and the countries in Europe and America use the ballet papers system, he said.
