Internal Polls In Political Parties

online civil service coaching

  • The Delhi High Court has asked the Election Commission to respond to a petition seeking to formulate and notify a model procedure for internal elections of all political parties.
  • The High Court order came on a petition urging the Election Commission to make internal polls mandatory for all parties who wish to register themselves under Section 29-A of the Representation of the People Act.
  • Internal elections of most parties "are often an eyewash for established political families within the said parties to continue to retain power as the top leadership of said party".
  • Lack of transparency and internal democracy in political parties are often reflected in similar nondemocratic governance models when said political parties come to power.
