Twenty one Opposition leaders have moved the Supreme Court seeking review of its order on matching of Voter-verifiable Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) slips with Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs). The leaders reiterated their request for counting at least 50 per cent of the VVPAT slips. This plea was turned down by the apex court earlier this month.
The court had then directed the Election Commission to increase random matching of VVPAT slips with EVMs from one to five polling booths per assembly segment in the ongoing general elections.
Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu yesterday sought the review of the order saying that the increase from one to five is not a reasonable number.
