    • Satyam

      Election commissioner can be removed in same manner as in case of Judges of Supreme Court i.e. EC can be removed by passing a Resolution in this regard in both the Houses. Therefore 3rd statement of Q8 is not correct.

  • Sunil Shaw

    For Q8. The removal of CEC requires two-third members of LS and RS to vote against him .

    @Surendra , here it is Union and not State Election Commission. So the Panchyat raj election responsibility falls under the State Election Commission and not UEC .
