Here are some reports of electoral malpractices from different parts of the world. Is there anything that these countries can learn from India to improve their elections? What would you suggest in each case?

 

During an election in Nigeria, the officer in charge of counting votes deliberately increased the votes of one candidate and declared him elected. The court later found out that more than five lakh votes cast for one candidate were counted in favour of another.

 

Answer:

The representatives of each candidate's party should be present on the day of the vote count. This election rule, which is used in India, should be adopted in Nigeria.
