CEC said that no political party vehemently objected the use of EVMs in the forthcoming elections in the state, though one or two parties did raise the issue.

He said that the Commission is aware that Elections have been conducted in the past under trying circumstances in the State adding J&K elections do attract global and national attention more than any other State.
 
With respect to Security Arrangements, CEC said that representatives from all Political Parties emphasized that adequate security be provided to voters and candidates so as to instill confidence in them about the conducive environment for forthcoming elections.
