New Faces, New Responsibilities: Election Commissioners To Take Charge Under PM Modi

Delhi: The Central government has appointed two new Election Commissioners, Gyanesh Kumar and Sukhbir Singh Sandhu, who will officially take charge of their positions on Friday.

The appointment comes after the recent resignation of Election Commissioner Arun Goel. The selection of Kumar and Sandhu for the important role was announced on Thursday evening through a notification by the government.

The inclusion of Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury in the panel as the opposition member highlights the collaborative effort of both ruling and opposition parties in this decision. Along with the Prime Minister and the Congress leader, Union Home Minister Amit Shah also attended the meeting.
