Demonetisation: Voters in poll-bound states may reap a rich bonanza of scrapped notes

While the implementation of demonetisation has left a lot to be desired, its very efficacy as a tool to ferret out black money is yet to be proved. #CriticalPoint #CEC #Election Commissioner #Election #Quraishi #polls #Demonetisation #Rs 1000 #UP election 2017 #Rs 500

South Korea's Park faces resignation calls at huge protest rally | Reuters

By Ju-min Park | SEOUL SEOUL South Korean President Park Geun-hye faced mounting pressure to step down on Saturday as hundreds of thousands of demonstrators marched in the capital to protest allegations that she let a friend meddle in state affairs.Saturday's rally in downtown Seoul was the largest so far in a crisis engulfing Park, 64, and organizers said some 850,000 people packed streets running through the city centre including a 12-lane thoroughfare. Police estimated the crowd at 260,000.Students, families including young couples pushing strollers and protesters in wheelchairs were among the crowd during the peaceful march, which contrasted with the violence of some previous rallies dominated by militant unions and civic groups that clashed with police #Politics #United States #India #South Korea #United Kingdom #Entertainment #polls

Trump gains on Clinton despite furore over women, election comments - Reuters/Ipsos poll| Reuters

By Chris Kahn | NEW YORK NEW YORK Donald Trump gained on Hillary Clinton among American voters this week, cutting her lead nearly in half despite a string of women accusing him of unwanted sexual advances and the furore over his disputed claims that the election process is rigged, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Friday.The survey also showed that 63 percent of Americans, including a third of Republicans, believe the New York real estate mogul has committed sexual assault in the past, though the Republican presidential candidate has denied the recent accusations.Clinton, the Democratic former secretary of state, led Trump 44 percent to 40 percent, according to the Oct. 14-20 poll, a 4-point lead, with the Nov. 8 election fast approaching. #United States #India #Business #markets #Election #polls #clinton

Venezuela delays state elections to 2017, opposition angry | Reuters

By Andrew Cawthorne | CARACAS CARACAS Elections for Venezuela's state governorships will be held in 2017 rather than December as expected, the election board said on Tuesday, giving the unpopular socialist government more breathing space before going to the polls.Critics say authorities have delayed the state elections - and are also seeking to derail an opposition push for a referendum to recall President Nicolas Maduro - because they are frightened of letting Venezuelans have their say.Maduro, who replaced the popular Hugo Chavez in 2013 after his death, has seen his ratings halve to just over 20 percent amid a deep economic crisis in the OPEC nation.The 23 state governors' four-year terms were to end in early January, with elections anticipated for December.But National Election Board head Tibisay Lucena, who the opposition says is close to the government, said they would instead be held toward mid-2017. Although Lucena did not give reasons, government officials have said exceptional measures are justified because of a U.S.-led "economic war" against them and the oil price crash."This decision by the election board is part of a dangerous trend by a regime clearly acting outside the constitution," the opposition Democratic Unity coalition said.With Chavez suffering from cancer but having just won re-election himself, the socialists swept to victory in 20 states in the last regional elections in 2012. But opinion polls show they would currently fare badly in any election, and government sources have said they are hoping for an oil price recovery to help them.The opposition has pushed for a referendum this year to remove Maduro and trigger a new presidential election #Politics #United States #United Kingdom #Entertainment #polls
