    AAP will hold hackathon on same day as Election Commission


    New Delhi: Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party will hold an EVM or Electronic Voting Machine hackathon on the same day as the Election Commission’s challenge for parties to prove allegations of tampering.

    AAP says its “counter-hackathon” aims at proving that the Election Commission’s exercise “is a farce”.

    “In the same conditions in which the Election Commission is holding its challenge, AAP will demonstrate its own machine, which we declare is tamperable. We are inviting political parties and all experts in the world to come,” said AAP’s Saurabh Bharadwaj.

    Bhardwaj, who had held a live demo last month in the Delhi Assembly of tampering on a prototype, said Chief Election Commissioner Nasim Zaidi was also invited.

    AAP decided to skip the Election Commission’s challenge on Saturday, complaining that the rules were too restrictive and all that anyone could do was to press the buttons of any four voting machines that were used in recent state elections.

    AAP says its hackathon will prove that “no machine can be tampered with by only touching buttons”.

    CPI-M and the Nationalist Congress Party were the only ones to apply for participation in the Election Commission’s challenge.

    The Commission had invited seven national parties and 49 state parties to apply for the challenge, which will be webcast live.
