Aizawl: Mizoram Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) Ashish Kundra Saturday said there would be 117 all women polling stations, manned by women polling officials and women security staff for the lone Lok Sabha seat in the state. Polling for the lone LS seat in Mizoram and the bypoll to the Aizawl West Assembly constituency will be held on April 11.
Addressing the media, Kundra said he had visited the districts of the state to oversee the poll preparedness and was fully satisfied that the election machineries were fully prepared to deliver on the promises of polls. “All the districts have completed commissioning of EVMs and the third and final round of training of polling officials would be completed by Monday,” he said. This time, there would be 117 all women polling stations, manned by women polling officials and women security staff, on the polling day due to huge positive response in the state assembly polls held late last year.
