Re-poll at 12 polling stations records 87.12% voter turnout
The re-polling at 12 polling stations in the Inner Manipur parliamentary constituency held on Wednesday concluded with 87.12 per cent voter turnout, the Joint Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) said.
Repolling on the 12 booths was initiated after several cases of impersonation, proxy voting and malpractices were reported during the second phase of elections on April 18. Communist Party of India candidate Dr M. Nara and Indian National Congress candidate O. Nabakishore had demanded fresh polls in the polling stations.
Nongmeikapam Ramananda, Joint Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) said voting was very peaceful and smooth at all the polling stations. The polling stations include Heingang Assembly segment (the Assembly constituency where Chief Minister N. Biren Singh was elected), one in Thongju, four in Keirao and two in Andro Assembly segment.
