India's poll watchdog will share its technical expertise and
experience in holding free and fair elections with over 100
countries through an initiative led by the US to uphold democracy
worldwide, according to an official statement.
Through a cohort on election integrity, the Election Commission
of India will provide training and hold capacity building
programmes for election management bodies across the world, India's
poll overseer said on Tuesday.
This will be part of the Summit for Democracy, a virtual
conference hosted by the US in December 2021 that has now planned
yearlong activities, events and multilateral dialogues, the
commission's statement said.
A four-member US delegation led by Uzra Zeya, undersecretary for
civilian security, democracy and human rights, called on chief
election commissioner Rajiv Kumar and election commissioner Anup
Chandra Pandey at Nirvachan Sadan in New Delhi on Tuesday.
In the first meeting held by Kumar since he took charge on
Sunday, he spoke about recent poll practices such as providing
postal ballot facility to voters over 80 years of age and to
persons with disabilities.
