The Supreme Court on Friday agreed to hear next week a review plea filed by 21 Opposition leaders seeking a further increase in the random matching of VVPAT slips with EVMs in the ongoing general elections.

The apex court had on April 8 directed the Election Commission to increase random matching of VVPAT slips with EVMs in five polling booths per assembly segment from one booth. 

Opposition leaders led by Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu has sought the review of the apex court's order, saying the increase from 1 to 5 is not a reasonable number.

The plea was mentioned for urgent hearing before a bench comprising Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice Deepak Gupta. 

Senior advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi, appearing for petitioners, urged the bench that the review plea be listed for hearing next week. The bench accepted the submission and said the matter will be heard next week.
