West Bengal Assembly Elections 2016 Countdown started

West Bengal assembly elections 2016 countdown has been started. Election Commissioner of India visited Bengal with his team and hold meetings with DMs and SPs to ensure fair polling. Election Commission has ensured polling under 100 percent central security.

The five-year term of the West Bengal Assembly is coming to an end on May 29, 2016. As per law, polls can be held six months prior to the end of the term of the assembly.

A full bench of the Election Commission (EC), led by Chief Election Commissioner Dr Nasim Zaidi were in West Bengal on 10 December 2015. Dr. Nasim said “The Election Commission will perform its constitutional obligations and ensure that the Assembly elections in West Bengal are held in free, fair and peaceful manner,” Zaidi told a press conference here after a series of meetings with officials and political parties. “There will be 100 per cent availability of central paramilitary forces in all polling stations well in advance, who will be used for area domination and confidence-building measures. The EC-appointed observers will be looking into the booth-wise and area-wise deployment of the central forces… the observers will be from outside the state.” 

Zaidi said, “We came here to assess the situation. We have already directed our election machinery to take note of, record and document any incident with political overtones and provide it to the EC.”

The Election Commission has announced the introduction of three IT initiatives for the West Bengal assembly elections 2016 which will be beneficial for the political parties and voters.
The IT initiative 'Suvidha' is a single window permission system for holding public meetings and rallies by parties in poll season.

"Political parties need permissions to conduct public meetings, rallies etc. The election period is very limited. If time is wasted in seeking permission, very precious time is lost by political parties. Under the scheme Suvidha, permissions will be issued in 24 hours." Chief Election Commissioner Dr. Nasim Zaidi said.

So far as the second initiative 'Samadhan' is concerned: "All complaints pertaining to elections, electoral rolls, code of conduct etc. will be brought on an IT platform. And their redressal will be ensured in time, and the complainant will be informed of the action taken and the status of the complaint made to the machinery." as said by Zaidi.
