New Delhi: The Election Commission will be organizing its ‘EVM challenge’ that will begin from June 3 in which the opposition parties will be invited to prove that EVMs could be tampered with the Election Commission. The challenge can last for 4-5 days. EC said that there has not been given proper proving regarding the tampering of EVMs.

There will be two challenges: The Challenge 1 is for general demonstration on claims of “tamper ability” and the Challenge 2 is for showing whether EVMs used during recent polls were tampered with.

The EVMs to be presented for the challenge will be in the same manner as they remain in EC custody after polls, he said.

“The challengers can press any key to tamper with the machine, use WiFi, Bluetooth or Internet device,” he said. “Claimants will have to tamper with the machines kept in exactly the same scenario in which they are kept by EC under technical and administrative safeguard, to prove that EVMs used in recent Assembly elections were tampered with.”
