Demonetisation: Centre's refusal to empower EC to clamp down on notebank politics raises eyebrows

In lieu of the demonetisation wave, the Centre’s reluctance to empower the Election Commission to clamp down on black money in politics does raise eyebrows. #Corruption #Tamil Nadu #Elections #Black money #ConnectTheDots #Election Commission #Law Ministry #Demonetisation #Rs 1000 #Rs 500

Mali's local elections marred by protests, boycotts | Reuters

By Adama Diarra and Souleymane Ag Anara | BAMAKO/GAO BAMAKO/GAO Malians burned ballot boxes and protested against long-delayed local elections this weekend to fill posts left vacant in the north since Islamist militants hijacked a 2012 Tuareg rebellion and ousted the government.The jihadists were driven out a year later by a French-led military operation, but have continued to launch strikes on army and U.N. targets from their desert bases and have intensified their insurgency in recent months and spread further south.Opposition parties as well as a medley of armed groups participating in a U.N.-led peace process have criticised Sunday's poll, pointing to deep divisions still affecting the former French colony three years after the war.While locals formed orderly lines outside of polling booths in the capital Bamako, voting was cancelled in districts around Timbuktu after ballot boxes were burned by unidentified armed men, residents and officials said."The current situation is not right for elections because the majority of our population are scattered in different refugee camps," said Amgar Ag Yehia, a Timbuktu resident who boycotted the vote. #Elections #Middle East #Europe #markets #Africa #lifestyle

The entire House was against corrupt and drug money, but an impression is being created that those opposing this are against curbing black money which is erroneous. #Elections #Congress #Arun Jaitley #parliament #Anand Sharma #Savings #Demonetisation #euros #PJ Kurien #Scam #Rs 1000 #Rs 500 #Pounds

Municipal council polls: Is BJP's alliance with Shiv Sena a necessity or Fadnavis' masterplan?

Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis seems to be on top of his game as he plays one trick over another to ensure his party's majority in the upcoming municipal Council and nagar panchayat election while keeping alive his seat as CM despite a love-hate relationship with alliance partner Shiv Sena. #Elections #BJP #Narendra Modi #ConnectTheDots #Uddhav Thackeray #Raj Thackeray #Shiv Sena #Maharashtra #Saamna #Maratha morcha #Ae Dil Hai Mushkil row #Municipal Council election #Narendra Fadnavis #Nagar Panchayat election

Clinton campaign urges FBI to detail new developments in email case | Reuters

By Richard Cowan | WASHINGTON WASHINGTON Top aides to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Saturday insisted there is "no evidence of wrongdoing" following the FBI's notification to the U.S. Congress on Friday that it is again looking at Clinton's use of a private server for emails when she was secretary of state."There's no evidence of wrongdoing, no charge of wrongdoing," Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta told reporters by telephone.Podesta, following up on calls by Clinton late on Friday, urged FBI Director James Comey to make public the details of any new developments in the case.Podesta also complained that 24 hours after Comey's letter was transmitted to Congress, "We have no real explanation of why Director Comey" sent it.The Washington Post reported on Saturday that senior Justice Department officials told Comey his letter to Congress was inconsistent with FBI policy of not commenting on ongoing investigations. This latest controversy over Clinton emails has surfaced in the waning days of a bitter presidential campaign against Republican challenger Donald Trump. #India #Business #Elections #science #Argentina #FBI
