DMPQ: On Papers Simultaneous elections seems good but implementation of it entails large arrays of problems. Discuss the points against conducting simultaneous elections. (Polity)

 

  1. Amending the Constitution to effect simultaneous elections would fundamentally alter its democratic and federal character.
  2. a disdain for the parliamentary system and the federal arrangement
  3. Logistics costs involved is very highly:
  • Need heavy deployment of security officials and staffs
  • Even current elections are conducted in multiple phase to dela with the varying geographical locations.
  • Buying Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) and Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) machines would cost Rs 9,284.15 crore, the EC told the House panel.
  1. State and national elections are often fought on different sets of issues — and in simultaneous elections, voters may end up privileging one set over the other in ways they might not have done otherwise.
  2. If we enforce the system of simultaneous elections, we would need to curtail the legislature’s power to unseat a government.
