April 16, 2019: Amid the incidents of cash seizures from DMK leaders over the last two weeks, the Election Commission (EC) Monday recommended to President Ram Nath Kovind that elections in the Vellore parliamentary constituency be cancelled citing the suspected use of money power to influence voters.

The development came after about 11 crore rupees in cash was seized from a building linked to DMK candidate.

Vellore is scheduled to go to polls with the rest of Tamil Nadu on April 18. It is unclear whether the two Assembly seats, Ambur and Gudiyattam, under the Vellore LS seat, facing bypolls will also be countermanded or go as planned on Thursday.

It may be stated that the Rashtrapati Bhavan received the EC's proposal Monday night. Reportedly, the recommendation, will be shared with the Law Ministry for its views on Tuesday. However, cancellation is imminent since the President, in this case, has little choice but to accept the EC's proposal.
