Shillong (Meghalaya) [India], April 12 (ANI): The Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) of Meghalaya has recommended re-polling at Konarchar polling station under Selsella constituency to the Election Commission.
"Perhaps because of simultaneous polls (Lok Sabha and by-polls), there was a human error, a mismatch of figures and crisscrossing of machines. Have recommended re-poll at Konarchar polling station under Selsella constituency to EC," said F R Kharkongor, Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) of Meghalaya.
He said that the EC's instructions are still awaited.
He said that female voter turn out was higher than the male voters while the final voting percentage was recorded at 71.37 per cent.
"71.37 per cent is the final voting percentage, which is second highest in the state so far in the LS polls. Female turnout was higher than the male turnout," he said.
Lok Sabha election on two seats in Meghalaya was held on April 11. The result will be announced on May 23. (ANI)
