Today, the Supreme Court has rejected a petition seeking for the direction to the Election Commission of India to advance poll timings from 7 am to 5:30 am for the seventh round of ongoing Lok Sabha Elections in view of scorching heat and the month of holy Ramzan.

A justice bench headed by Justices Sanjiv Khanna and Indira Banerjee has rejected the petition, claims the notification timings of voting are starting from 7 am and end at 6 pm. Voters are eligible to cast their vote on morning as well.

The justice bench has informed the Advocate Mohammad Nizamuddin Pasha that “the timings are for 7 am to 6 pm. People can come in the morning to cast their votes. They (EC) will face logistical problem (if timings are preponed).”

Advocate Pasha had lodged the plea, asked for advance polling time in the last phase of ongoing elections.
