Chief Election Commissioner for 2024?

By IndianMandarins 19 Aug 2020

The President of India is reported to have accepted the resignation tendered by the Election Commissioner Ashok Lavasa (Retd IAS:1980:HY) with effect from Aug 31 following which the appointment of the new Election Commissioner is expected in a couple of days. Lavasa is set to proceed as Vice Chairman, Asian Development Bank (ADB).

Amid the unfolding scenario, the incumbent Union Revenue Secretary Ajay Bhushan Pandey (IAS:1985:MH) is said to have been the frontrunner for the post but there are other contenders as well. Pandey would complete the superannuation age in February next year. In case he becomes CE he will have a tenure up to February 2025. On the other hand, it is believed that Pandey may get a key assignment in the World Bank. 

It is further understood that whosoever is appointed as EC will be the Chief Election Commissioner during 2024 Lok Sabha polls.

The incumbent Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Sunil Arora’s (Retd IAS:1980:RJ) tenure is ending April next year following which Sushil Chandra would replace him as the next CEC. Chandra’s term would end in May 2022. As the second senior-most EC in May 2022, next to Sushil Chandra (Retd IRS IT:1980), would be the next CEC in 2024.  

It may be interesting to watch who next; Ajay Bhushan Pandey or 'someone else'.
