Election commissioners in any state must be independent persons and not appointed by the state government, the Supreme Court said today in a case involving civic body elections in Goa. The Supreme Court also rebuked the Goa government for appointing its law secretary as state election commissioner to oversee municipal council polls, which were to be held in February last year.
