Organisational polls: EC extends deadline for Congress to Dec 31

SNS | New Delhi |

In a latest development to the EC-Congress row over organisational polls, the Election Commission (EC) on Monday extended the deadline set for the party from June 30 to December 31.

The EC had on January 30, 2017, directed the Congress to conclude its organisational elections by June 30, rejecting the grand old party’s plea for a one-year extension.

The poll panel conveyed its decision in a letter to the Congress general secretary in-charge of organisation Janardan Dwivedi.

The EC had also asked the 131-year-old party to submit a complete list of office-bearers, members of committees, etc elected at such elections latest by July 15, 2017.
