In Botswana, EVMs Made In India Spark Political Row; Opposition Doubts Credibility Of Machine

It’s almost an identical story, but in another continent. The Election Commission of India is facing questions on credibility of electronic voting machines in Botswana. Its testimony could be crucial to how that nation will hold its October 2019 general elections.

Diamond-rich Botswana is seeing heated political debates over using EVMs imported from India. The Opposition Botswana Congress Party (BCP) has moved court against the Botswana Democratic Party (BDP) government’s amendments to electoral laws that enabled the use of EVMs.
