Arun Goel (New Election Commissioner): Arun Goyal, a 1985 batch Punjab cadre officer, has taken over as the new Election Commissioner on Monday. Arun Goel has now become part of the Election Commission along with Chief Election Commissioner Rajeev Kumar and Election Commissioner Anoop Chandra Pandey. A day earlier, information about this was given by the government. Let us tell you that Goyal has replaced Sushil Chandra who retired from the post of Chief Election Commissioner in the month of May this year.

Election Commissioner:

Let us tell you that Arun Goyal, the owner of a sharp intellect but with a clean image, is basically a resident of Patiala. Hardworking since childhood, Goyal’s father was a professor at Punjabi University. Goyal, who was very bright since childhood, wanted to become an IAS officer from the beginning. He has also been a BA topper of Modi College Patiala.

Election Commissioner:

After becoming an IAS, his first posting was as SDM in Kharar (Punjab). He has also been the Deputy Commissioner in Ludhiana and has served in the Housing and Irrigation Department for a long time.

Resigned forty days before retirement

After this, he was playing an important role in PMO for many years. Last Friday itself, forty days before his retirement, he resigned from his post. He was to retire on December 31, 2022. Ever since his resignation, there were speculations that he might get some big responsibility and on Saturday all those speculations came true when the central government informed him about making him the new Election Commissioner.

The special thing is that Goyal has taken over the post of Election Commissioner just a month before the Gujarat assembly elections. Significantly, elections are to be held in Gujarat in two phases. The first voting will be held on December 1, the second voting will be held on December 5, while the election results will come on December 8.
