Team Anna demands 'Right to Reject' Button on EVM

Demanding electoral reforms, social activist Anna Hazare and his team met the Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) earlier asking for the ‘right to reject’ option in Electronic Voting Machines(EVM) and barring of candidates against whom courts have framed charges, from fighting elections. The activists demanded that two election commissioners should also get constitutional status like that of CEC. Hazare and his team members including Justice (retired) Santosh Hegde, advocate Prashant Bhushan, RTI activist Arvind Kejriwal and former IPS officer Kiran Bedi met CEC SY Qureshi and discussed the issues with him for around an hour.
