Senior officials of ECI and UNDP were present on the occasion.

          Chief Election Commissioner Shri Sampath observed that transparency and strict enforcement have been the strength of ECI which have lent total credibility to Indian elections. He underlined the Commission’s commitment to work along South-South cooperation and extend support to electoral process wherever there is a need.

Ms Grynspan, who led the 8 member UNDP delegation, lauded the impressive independence of the Indian Election Commission, which, she said is a source of stability.
