EC observer team yet to submit its report to CEC
Decision on assembly polls after consultations with MHA: CEO
Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Electoral Officer Shailendra Kumar on Wednesday said that the three member team of election observers appointed for Jammu and Kashmir is yet to submit its report to Chief Election Commissioner Sunil Arora.
He said that any decision on the conduct of assembly elections in the state will be taken after ECI’s consultation with the Union Home Ministry on additional security deployments for assembly polls in the state.
“The three member team of election observers which recently visited Jammu and Kashmir to reassess the situation for conduct of assembly elections in the state has not submitted its report to chief election commissioner Sunil Arora yet. The report will be submitted to the CEC very soon,” he said.
“A decision on holding assembly elections will be taken by election commission of India only after consultations with the union home ministry,” he added. (KNS)
