Lok Sabha Election Results: VVPAT count to be held at the end like in the past

The opposition parties which had approached the EC on Tuesday wanted five random VVPATs to be counted first so that if there is a problem or a mismatch, all VVPAT slips can be counted before it is too late.
The exact reasoning for sticking to the old protocol was not immediately clear. As per procedure, postal ballots so far were the first to be counted.
