Panaji: Delegates from Mongolia, Bhutan and Israel on Monday witnessed the dispatch of electronic voting machines (EVMs) to polling stations.

The delegates from Bhutan and Mongolia, who had received an invitation from the Election Commission of India (ECI) to observe the world’s largest democracy electing its government, had arrived in Goa on Sunday.

In addition 15 media personnel from Bhutan and two from Israel have also arrived in the state to observe Goans casting their votes.

Earlier in the day, officials of the Election Commission of Bhutan and the general election commission of Mongolia were briefed by the office of the CEO on the poll machinery in the state.

The delegates, who are on a three-day visit, will leave the state on Wednesday. They interacted with the polling officials at the Dr Shyama Prasad Mukherjee Stadium, Bambolim and later visited South Goa.

In Margao, they visited the unique booth located in the heritage building of Margao, a PwD polling booth and the Margao Municipal Council.

“There are total of 18 journalists and four delegates including the Election Commissioners and a foreign relation officer,” said Prasad Volvoikar, the liaison officer of the election.

Shaiya Akil, the chief editor of i24News, a news channel of Israel said he was amazed to see the election democratically held in India.

“In Israel the last election was held in the year 2022. Israel needs to learn a lot from India on how to conduct the election,” Akil said.
