Consultation on �Right to recall� likely: Khurshid

By The Assam Tribune

NEW DELHI, Oct 17 � A day after the Election Commission disfavoured the idea of right to recall, Law Minister Salman Khurshid today said government is working on Team Anna�s proposal for such a provision which could form part of the all-party consultations on poll reforms.

He said the demand for right to recall of elected lawmakers was a difficult task, but the government was �working on that�. �We have a very strong lobby that is questioning us on the need to introduce the right to reject,� he said speaking on �Bharat and India: Challenges and Ambitions� at the Asian Forum for Global Governance here.

Khurshid said there are also �strong demands� for right to recall inspired largely by some small segments in US and Europe, particularly in municipal elections.

�Right to recall in a constituency that has more than 1.5 million voters. Get signatures from 100 thousand or 50 thousand, authenticate those signatures is not an easy job. But we are working on that,� he said. � PTI
