Goa :Gearing up for the forthcoming municipal polls, the state election commission has appointed returning officers for the 11 municipalities and the Corporation of the City of Panaji (CCP).The election date, however, is yet to be finalised. As per court order, delimitation and reservation should be announced at least three weeks before the date is announced. The reservation of wards was notified last week.
The exercise has attracted a lot of criticism as there is no consistency or no fixed criteria followed while reserving seats for women, scheduled tribes, scheduled castes and other backward classes. Some affected parties have threatened to move court against the reservation.
