Nominating a Candidate for Elections - A Need for Plan B

This is a mystery but given that money politics is a possibility anywhere, political parties should always have a Plan B for Nomination Day.

Otherwise all your chances are gone if your candidate does not show up. What a way to lose a seat.

We all know that politics is a dirty game and some politicians will stoop to very dirty tactics. In this case the freedom of the people to elect their representative has been denied.

The time to submit nomination papers also seems very short. For better security and to avoid confrontations among the rivals, the time should be at least 3 hours.
