New Delhi: The Election Commission has said no to the Trinamool Congress’ demand for recounting of votes in the Nandigram Assembly constituency and said “only legal remedy is to file an EP (Execution Petition) before the High Court” on Tuesday.

Following the declaration of Assembly election results on Sunday, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had approached state Chief Electoral Officer Aariz Aftab and demanded the recounting of votes in Nandigram, after the Returning Officer decided not to allow the same.

The EC on Tuesday clarified that the Returning Officer (RO) of an Assembly constituency performs statutory functions under the RP Act, 1951 in “quasi-judicial” capacity independently, reported news agency IANS.

According to the commission, the RO takes a decision that can only be challenged through an election petition under Section 80 of the RP Act, 1951.
