Editorial With Sujit Nair | Is Election Commission Helping Our Democracy?

In this episode of ‘Editorial’, Mr. Sujit Nair addresses the remarks made by the Election Commission of India (ECI) regarding Form 17C in the Supreme Court. Recently, the ECI opposed a plea requesting public access to Form 17C, the statutory record of votes cast at polling stations. The Election Commission opposed the application by ADR and Common Cause, which sought the immediate release of voter turnout data for the ongoing Lok Sabha Elections. The ECI argued before the Supreme Court that making Form 17C data publicly available could lead to an increased risk of images being morphed, including counting results, which can create widespread public discomfort and mistrust in the electoral process.
