Ahead of the election for the post of deputy mayor in three municipal corporations, the Odisha government has amended the election rules.

The housing & urban development department on Monday issued two separate notifications to implement the new rule for the election of deputy mayor and vice-chairperson in several urban local bodies (ULBs) of Odisha.

The new rule has allowed for appointment of agents by political parties and the election officer will allow the authorised agents to verify the votes cast by the elected members of their respective parties as is being done during the Rajya Sabha elections.

“In furtherance of the provisions of the Odisha Municipal Corporation (division of city into wards, reservation of seats and conduct of election) Rules, 2003, the government have been pleased to decide that every political party, whose member as an elector casts a vote for the purpose of election to the office of the deputy mayor of a municipal corporation, may appoint one authorised agent,” read one of the notifications.
