EC waived registration time for party for Bihar election
Meanwhile, the Election Commission on Thursday, keeping in mind the restrictions imposed due to the Kovid-19 epidemic, said that now only seven days notice will have to be given to register new parties in the wake of Bihar elections. Previously, any front or group had to submit an application to the Election Commission within 30 days of its formation to register as a political party.
Those applying for registration will have to publish the proposed name of the party in two national and two local newspapers on two separate days. If anyone has any objection to the registration of the proposed party, then they have to lodge an objection within 30 days of the publication of the notice. The commission says that this exemption in registration will be applicable till October 20, the last day of nomination for the last phase of elections.
