NRIs can proxy-vote soon: Sushma

AHMEDABAD, OCTOBER 14TH 

Addressing women BJP workers in a town hall interaction, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said here on Saturday that soon non-resident Indians (NRIs) would be able to proxy-vote in elections in the country as the government was set to amend the Representation of the People Act.

She said that under the present law, NRIs registered in India as voters had to fly to the country during an election to cast their vote, but with the amendment, they could just issue an authorisation letter to family members or relatives to vote on their behalf.
