Kohima, Jan 16 : The Election Commission of India (ECI) on Saturday asserted that as mandated by Constitution it would “deliver election” in Nagaland.

The ECI clearly stated that calls for boycott do not affect the political process.

The Chief Election Commissioner Rajiv Kumar, who is in Kohima to review the poll preparedness in Nagaland, said, “We will deliver the elections despite whatever calls there are and it doesn’t affect the political process,”.

The chief EC was speaking in Kohima in the presence of Election Commissioners Anup Chandra Pandey and Arun Goel.

Speaking to media persons, Rajiv Kumar said, “Constitution clearly provides and mandates the ECI that the elected government has to be in place before the end of the term of the present assembly and if it does not happen, it possesses different kind of problem,”.

“ECI is mandated under the Constitution to conduct elections and declare results to put the duly elected government in place before the term of the present assembly comes to end and we are duty bound to that,” Rajiv Kumar said.

The term of the present Nagaland Assembly expires on March 12.

On the other hand, the Naga Civil societies have been demanding solutions to the Naga political issues before the elections while the Eastern Nagaland People’s Organisation (ENPO) have already declared not to participate in the election process.
