Channel NewsAsia reports on a form of electoral trickery popular in India. In an attempt to confuse voters, rival parties are fielding multiple candidates who have the same name as a more well-known candidate. For instance, "in central Chhatisgarh, incumbent MP Chandulal Sahu of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is running against no less than seven competitors who share his name." So when election day arrives, the voters may not be sure which is the correct Chandulal Sahu to vote for.
Apparently this is a perfectly legal thing to do.
This sounds to me like the porno marketers -- offering material of little-known gals under the names of well-known models (and politics ain't much different than porn.)Posted by hoaxinghal on Tue May 06, 2014 at 07:44 PM
