EC says dissents in its orders related to model code violations will not be made public

DD News
The full Election Commission(EC) that comprises CEC Sunil Arora and fellow commissioners Ashok Lavasa and Sushil Chandra today ruled that dissents and minority views in Election Commission orders, in cases of model code violations, would not be made public.

The EC in a statement said, the dissent notes and minority views would remain part of records as it is the case now. The EC had maintained that since the poll code violation cases are not quasi judicial in nature, they are not signed by the chief election commissioner (CEC) and fellow commissioners, and thus, the dissent cannot be made part of the order.

Commissioner Ashok Lavasa had rescued himself from Model Code of Conduct violation cases, saying his dissent was not being made part of the orders. He had given his dissent in some of the commission's clean chits to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah in complaints of MCC violations.

Earlier in a statement on Saturday, the Election Commission had said that there have been so many times in the past when there has been a vast diversions of views. It had further said that its three members are not expected to be template or clones of each other.
