The poll board's standards express an inclination for a consistent view however accommodate a dominant part managing without unanimity.
"I am being compelled to avoid the meetings of the full commission since minority choices are not being recorded," Mr. Lavasa kept in touch with the Chief Election Commissioner on May 4. "My interest in the consultations of the Commission ends up good for nothing since my minority choices go unrecorded," Mr Lavasa said in the letter.
"I should seriously mull over taking a response to different measures went for reestablishing the legal working of the Commission as far as to chronicle minority choices," he composed. "My different notes on the requirement for straightforwardness in the chronicle and revelation of all choices including the minority see have gone unnoticed, driving me to pull back from taking an interest in the considerations on the protests."

As per the Chief Election Commissioner, just minority sees in semi-legal procedures can be recorded in the requests and the choices on poll code protests are not semi-legal procedures, thus minority sees need not be recorded.
