Agartala, Dec 05, 2019:Retired IAS officer ML Dey, who was the secretary of Information and Cultural Affairs (ICA) today assumed charge as the state election commissioner, official sources confirmed. He is succeded by GK Rao, who earlier appointed as Chief Information Commissioner of the state.

The appointment is seen as important keeping in mind of the next year's TTAADC elections. The state government has appointed him as the new SEC keeping in mind of Dey's experience in handling election process. It may be noted that Dey had discharged his duty as the Addl CEO of the state for long time.
