Election guidelines

A report says TS Krishnamurthy, the former chief election commissioner, has mandated that all candidates for prime posts in the upcoming BCCI election file their nominations by November 27 latest. It's a nice start, though one part of me wishes he had gone the whole hog and mandated a deadline a week ahead of the scheduled poll. This way, with less than 48 hours between deadline and poll, not sure what happens if a particular candidate is scratched for any reason, including the most technical. Anyways, this is still way better than happened in the past, when a person's candidature was often known on the morning of the elections.


  • about time, someone sensible took charge. And I am just talking abt the election process.
