election commissioner resignation

ECI: Alarming Development


The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) is alarmed by the sudden development within the Election Commission of India.

One of the Election Commissioners, who had three years remaining before retirement, has resigned, and the resignation has been formally accepted. With one of the Commissioner positions already vacant, this creates a situation where the Commission is presently represented by a single member, the Chief Election Commissioner.
