Not a single national or state recognised political party has yet come forward to take up the Election Commission challenge that the Electronic Voting Machines used by the Commission used in the recently held General Assembly Elections in States, Goa, Manipur, Punjab, Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh during February-March, 2017 this year can be tampered with.

The Commission has given time till 5 p.m. on May 26 to National and State Recognised political party to send details of the nominees it would be sending to participate in the EVM challenge.

Each party is allowed to send a maximum of three people for the challenge and depending on how many parties decide to participate in the challenge it will run for 4-5 days, Commission officials said

A number of parties including the Aam Adami Party and Bahujan Samaj Party had alleged that the EVM had been tampered with during the elections held in February March this year.
