Draft list of delimited wards published

Staff Reporter

Number of city wards is 86

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: With the publication of the draft list of delimited divisions in the local bodies institutions in the district on Saturday, the number of wards in the city corporation has increased from 81 to 86 and the district panchayat from 25 to 28.

The district administration has also published the draft list of delimited wards in Neyyattinkara municipality, Athiyanoor, Perumgadavila, Nemom and Kazhakkuttom block panchayats. This has given an impetus to the election preparations in the district. The wards have been delimited as per the census figures of 2001. The number of wards in certain block panchayats has gone up to 15 and in grama panchayats to 22.

The officers of the district administration would study the complaints from the public and submit a report to the State Election Commission on August 17. The commission would hold public hearings and sort out the complaints. The two days that have been allotted for filing complaints are holidays and this has given rise to apprehensions. It has been pointed out that the time is insufficient to study the list and file complaints.

When contacted, the district administration officials said that they have been directed to complete the delimitation process in a time-bound manner without giving room for complaints. This was decided at a high-level conference of District Collectors summoned by the State Election Commissioner N. Mohandas on Friday.

The preparations for conducting the elections in September are progressing without any hitch, officials said. The number of polling stations has been finalised. The polling stations would be located without causing much inconvenience to the voters.

Meanwhile, Revenue Department personnel have begun door-to-door visits aimed at ascertaining that the details in photo-affixed voter lists published this year are correct. The visits would continue till August 16.
