The long-drawn-out, seven-phase, general elections are finally over. While the results are yet to be announced, it is an opportune moment to look back and internalise the lessons thrown up during the conduct of these elections. To begin with, there is an urgent need to shift towards shorter election seasons. The Model Code of Conduct (MCC) was enforced on March 10 and polling took place between April 11 and May 19. When most elections around the world get over in a matter of one or two days, such a long election season is an anachronism in this day and age. It is true that India throws up many more challenges than other democracies, yet it is undeniable that the Election Commission (EC) plays too safe while deciding the election schedule.
