Kejriwal questions EC over undue delay in final voter turnout

Agency News

After Exit polls predicted the Aam Aadmi Party’s dramatic victory, a more confident Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal questioned the Election Commission over delay in the announcement of the final voter turnout in the Delhi Assembly election 2020, polling for which was held on Saturday.

The last voting percentage given by the commission on Saturday night was 61.46 per cent. The voting in the national capital to elect a new government ended at 6 pm on Saturday.

With the Election Commission yet to come out with the final voting percentage of Delhi Assembly elections, Arvind Kejriwal said it was "absolutely shocking" that the poll body was yet released the final voter turnout.

Arvind Kejriwal also wondered why the poll panel was not releasing the figure several hours after polling got over.

Arvind Kejriwal said, "Absolutely shocking. What is EC doing? Why are they not releasing poll turnout figures, several hours after polling?"

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Sanjay Singh also held a press conference and said something was fishy since it was more than 17 hours and the election commission was yet to release the final voter turnout figure.

Talking to reporters, Sanjay Singh said that this is perhaps the first time in the country's history that the Election Commission is not ready to release the final Delhi election 2020 voter turnout data.
