tally of polling figures and actual vote count in the recently-concluded elections to the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) and Pimpri-Chinchwad has sparked a controversy as several defeated candidates have alleged that the Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) were tampered with and they malfunctioned These candidates have now taken to the city streets to protest Candidates of all major parties including the NCP MNS Congress and Shiv Sena have been at the forefront of these protests Watch What Else is Making News In data made public by the PMC’s election office it was found that at least 14 electoral panels had a lesser vote count than the actual number of votes polled under a system where voting for each candidate in a four-ward electoral panel was mandatory As per the election process the total number of votes cast should remain the same for each of the four wards in an electoral panel and match the polling data In some electoral panels the total vote count was found to be more than the actual number of votes polled In a letter to the State Election Commission civic activist Vijay Kumbhar wrote “There are only 15 electoral panels in PMC and 11 in PCMC where the data on number of votes cast and the final votes counted was the same This means in 26 and 20 electoral panels in the PMC and PCMC respectively there is a mismatch of figures … If candidates had grievances they should have lodged a complaint with the returning officer after the results” said Dinesh Waghmare PCMC Commissioner NCP’s Pimpri-Chinchwad unit president Sanjog Waghere said “The BJP is in power and it has resorted to tampering EVMs… ” said Waghere adding that the NCP couldn’t have lost in Pimpri-Chinchwad where the public mood was in favour of the party On the controversy Pune Municipal Commissioner Kunal Kumar said the election data made public was “preliminary” “There must be some miscalculation at the administrative level… the final data will make things clear” he said adding that they had kept the election process completely transparent and hadn’t received any specific complaints on the “malfunctioning” of EVMs They are finding it difficult to digest their shock defeats But it is wrong to blame the EVMs” said Girish Bapat District Guardian Minister “It is obvious that the defeated candidates would make allegations but the election staff work under a lot of pressure and put in their best effort” said Kumar PMC election officer Satish Kulkarni said “We will look into the figures in each ward and panel on a case-to-case basis to find the reason behind the differences in numbers as they should have been the same However the postal ballot done on paper might be one of the reasons for the mismatch of figures” But State Election Commissioner J S Saharia denied any possibility of the EVMs being tampered with Saharia said the complainants should approach their respective municipal commissioners Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Commissioner Dinesh Waghmare said “If the candidates had any grievances they should have lodged a complaint with the returning officer after the results were declared The returning officer is the statutory authority in the case” Denying any possibility of EVM tampering the PCMC official said “The entire process… is held in the presence of representatives of all candidates The EVM machines are kept in the strongroom in the presence of representatives of candidates… Even during voting everything is done in the presence of polling agents” Waghmare said he had no power to announce an investigation in the matter “The only remedy for the complainant is to approach the High Court” he said They are finding it difficult to digest defeat: BJP Refuting the allegations District Guardian Minister Girish Bapat said “They are finding it difficult to digest their shock defeats But it is wrong to blame the EVMs Everything is done in front of poll representatives…If there was tampering… then how could candidates other than those from BJP also win” For all the latest Pune News download Indian Express App More Top NewsUpdated: May 30 2014 8:20 am There’s controversy over whether Nripendra Misra could be appointed to the post of principal secretary to PM Related News By:Madhav Khosla A mere two days after the new government was sworn in controversy arose over whether the proposed principal secretary to the prime minister — Nripendra Misra — could be appointed to the post Misra is a former chairperson of the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) and the Trai Act 1997 provides that chairpersons are “ineligible for further employment under the Central government or any state government” To remedy matters an ordinance amending the Trai Act was swiftly promulgated Many have criticised this move as violating institutional norms and enabling political interference with independent regulators The government’s actions trigger important questions The answers however are not entirely straightforward primarily because the legal and political character of bodies such as the Trai remains unclear When does the complete independence of public institutions matter Independence is clearly essential for judicial or quasi-judicial bodies This category includes courts and tribunals such as the Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal These bodies are checks on executive and legislature action Any interference with them violates the separation of powers and the way their autonomy should be secured (administrative independence financial independence etc) is a key issue in public law It is the reason why we endlessly debate how Supreme Court judges should be appointed or whether bureaucrats should be allowed to sit on tribunals Another instance where independence matters is in bodies that operate outside the legislature and executive but are not judicial in character These are only a select few — the most prominent example is the Election Commission which oversees the process which will determine the composition of the legislature and the executive Accordingly it cannot function under the executive or the legislature Bodies like the Trai are more delicately placed They undoubtedly operate within a zone of autonomy A person appointed to head Trai has a fixed statutory term he is required to resign from government service before taking over he can only be fired for cause and until this ordinance he could not be further employed in government The rationale for such safeguards is that the day-to-day functioning of the regulator should be immune to the pressures of politics Regulatory decisions like in the field of telecom should be motivated by economic and technocratic expertise and all modern administrative states try to provide some degree of insulation from politics This aspiration towards independence in daily functioning does not however fully delink these bodies from the executive In any parliamentary system they should be viewed as ultimately accountable to the executive which is responsible to the legislature Indeed the legal existence of such bodies is only made possible by Article 53 of the Constitution which permits the Union’s executive power to be exercised not merely by the president but also by officers subordinate to it The fact that such bodies have some relationship with the political executive and are not entirely insulated from politics is also evidenced by the fact that the government can broadly set the political course of a regulator through appointment that it can indicate its disapproval of regulatory actions without incurring contempt unlike in the case of the higher judiciary that it can enact delegated legislation and so forth If such bodies are understood to formally function in the limited political sense described above then changing post-retirement benefits is less problematic than we might imagine Checks and balances after all are meant to be external rather than internal to the executive The state should be able to determine the kind of autonomy such institutions are granted and how it may be protected Post-retirement restrictions of the kind amended do not for example exist for members of the Competition Commission The original rationale for the Trai restriction was the dominance of Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited in the telecom sector and the concern that the regulator might be unduly influenced by this state actor Given how the sector has evolved this particular rationale no longer holds and there is no reason why the rules regarding autonomy cannot similarly evolve But if indeed such bodies lack full independence we might ask what checks exist on the misuse of their powers The short answer is judicial review All administrative decisions are subject to review by the relevant tribunal as well as by the high court and Supreme Court under their writ jurisdiction It is the principles of constitutional and administrative law that safeguard against the naked operation of vested political interests If on the other hand we envisage a regulatory environment where we place a greater degree of emphasis on independence and autonomy — and argue that bodies like the Trai are not part of the executive — we need an account of how that can be reconciled with cabinet responsibility and parliamentary government In either instance clarity on the somewhat ambiguous status of bodies like the Trai would shed light on issues like ministerial accountability for the actions of independent regulators and enable a regulatory environment in which the chain of accountability is no longer a matter of speculation The writer a lawyer and political scientist at Harvard University is author of ‘The Indian Constitution’ [email protected] For all the latest
