This Brief contains proposals about placing checks on the office of the President and the Governors from influencing the electoral process. The disclosure and declarations by the candidates in their nomination forms should be made public through the internet before every election. There is a need for changing the eligibility criteria for the members of the Election Commission and for the post of the CEC. CGEP also advocates for reforms such as live posting of polling stations-wise (progressive) voting results on the ECP website; an agreed Code of Conduct by political parties; strict compliance of Laws by the ECP to control Government influence; setting up of a realistic ceiling on maximum election expenses and application of electoral rules and laws on all.
