EC to re­place Mi­zo­ram chief poll of­fi­cer

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

With less than 20 days to go for Mi­zo­ram’s assem­bly elec­tion, the EC ini­ti­ated the process to re­place Mi­zo­ram chief elec­toral of­fi­cer S B Shashank on Satur­day, re­ports Pra­bin Kalita.

Shashank’s ouster was sought by an um­brella body of protesters, the NGO Co­or­di­na­tion Com­mit­tee. Shashank had com­plained against prin­ci­pal sec­re­tary (home) Lal­nun­mawia Chuaungo, a Mizo, for in­ter­fer­ing in the poll process. Mizo or­ga­ni­za­tions saw Chuaungo’s sub­se­quent re­moval as un­fair.
