‘Historic day’: Amit Shah hails ‘One Nation-One Election’ report | India News


NEW DELHI: Union home minister Amit Shah on Thursday hailed the ‘One Nation-One Election‘ report.
Taking to X (formerly known as Twitter) Shah said,” It is a historic day for the country’s democratic system. Today, the high-level committee formed by the Modi government on One Nation One Election, chaired by Shri Ramnath Kovind Ji, presented its report before the hon’ble President.

The High Level Committee on Simultaneous Elections, chaired by Shri Ram Nath Kovind, Former President of India, met the Honourable President of India, Shrimati Droupadi Murmu at Rashtrapati Bhavan , and submitted its Report.The Report comprises of 18,626 pages, and is an outcome of extensive consultations with stakeholders, experts and research work of 191 days, since its constitution on 2 September, 2023.
The move will, however, require multiple changes — from standardising of the electoral rolls to amending the laws and Constitution — for which a roadmap has been provided in the recommendations submitted. The process will be time-consuming as govt, after analysing the report, will have to undertake legislative changes.
One of the key aspects to watch will be the transition path towards the switch to one election model, given that assemblies have been elected at different times and synchronising fresh polls to all of them along with elections to Lok Sabha will require the tenure of some being readjusted.
