2019 Elections Live: Let country elect its govt, says SC, junks 'nuisance' plea seeking 100% VVPAT-EVM matching

VVPAT

The Supreme Court today junked a petition demanding 100 per cent EVM and VVPAT verification, saying it won’t entertain such a plea “over and over again”. Calling the petition by NGO Techno4All a “nuisance”, the court said no one could come in the way of people electing their representatives.

The development comes just ahead of the Opposition’s meeting with the Election Commission to demand recounting of votes if EVMs and VVPAT slips do not match.
