EVM tampering row: EC to hold live demo of EVMs, VVPATs tomorrow

Election Commission will hold a live demo of Electronic Voting Machines, EVMs, and VVPATs tomorrow in New Delhi.

The Commission will also hold a press conference on EVM Challenge.
Last week, the poll body had formally thrown a challenge to political parties to prove EVMs used in the recent assembly polls were tampered-with, after several opposition parties questioned their reliability and demanded going back to the paper ballot system.

The Commission also held an all party meeting to discuss the issues relating to the reliability of the EVMs and Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trail- VVPATs and electoral reforms.

Chief Election Commissioner Nasim Zaidi had said that parties can try and prove that EVMs can be tampered with even under strict technical and administrative safeguards as applicable during elections.
