EC will organise worldwide conference on election security and technology

The Election Commission of India (ECI) will organise a two-day international conference for election administration officials from seventeen nations beginning on Monday, according to a statement released on Sunday.

This would be the second meeting hosted by the ECI under the US-led Summit for Democracy platform, in which the ECI has been chosen to lead the elections integrity cohort.

In October, 50 representatives from 11 nations participated in the first meeting.

The conference occurs at a time when the ECI has advocated the deployment of remote voting equipment to enable domestic migrants to vote – a proposal that was rejected by the majority of political parties at a recent meeting.

“Around 43 participants from 17 countries/EMBs [election management bodies] are anticipated to participate, including Angola, Argentina, Armenia, Australia, Chile, Croatia, Dominica, Fiji, Georgia, Indonesia, Kiribati, Mauritius, Nepal, Paraguay, Peru, Philippines, and Suriname. It is anticipated that representatives from a number of foreign missions headquartered in New Delhi will also attend the conference, according to the ECI.

Chief Election Commissioner Rajeev Kumar would kick off the two-day convention. The ECI stated that Election Commissioner Anup Chandra Pandey will preside over the final session, while Election Commissioner Arun Goel would preside over the first technical session.

Also participating in the conference would be the International Foundation for Electoral Systems and International IDEA.
