Voters got right to reject candidates in Polls by Supreme Court

The Supreme Court on Friday directed the Election Commission to provide a ‘none of the above’ button in EVMs for voters to reject candidates contesting elections.

If right to vote is statutory right, right to reject candidate is fundamental right of speech and expression under Constitution, SC further added.

‘Right to Reject’ is a proposed voting option in India that would allow voters who support none of the candidates available to them to register an official vote of “none of the above”, which is not currently allowed under India election regulation.
