NOTA Hold fresh polls where got most votes

Why in News?

An advocate has moved the Supreme Court for a direction that fresh elections should be held in a constituency where NOTA (‘None of the above’ option) garnered the maximum number of votes. Besides, none of the candidates who lost to NOTA should be allowed to contest the fresh polls.

What is the NOTA system of India?

 

  • In 2013, India became the 14th country to institute negative voting through NOTA. However, it is not a “right to reject”.
  • Even if there are 99 NOTA votes out of a total of 100, and candidate X gets just one vote, X is the winner, having obtained the only valid vote.
  • The rest of the NOTA votes will be treated as invalid or ‘no votes’.
  • NOTA enfeeble the electorate as it does not empower to “select” either.
  • It provides democratic means to express resentment anonymously rather than boycotting the polls outright.
