Tight security for Nagaland assembly poll counting


Adequate security arrangements have been made for the counting of votes to the 59 assembly seats of the 60-member House in Nagaland tomorrow.

Peaceful elections were held in the state on February 23 while re-polling was done in nine polling stations at eight Assembly constituencies spread over seven districts yesterday.

CEO Nagaland J Alam told PTI that counting will be held in 12 districts, which includes Pughoboto electoral district. A total of 59 halls have been provided in the districts with three-tier security layers created in each counting hall.

Over 10,000 counting personnel including counting supervisors and counting assistants will be engaged in the counting process along with micro observers and Election Commission appointed observers.

In consonance with an Election Commission directive, the international border has been sealed so that no unwanted elements can enter into the state during the counting of votes. The entire process will be videographed, he said.
