The outgoing CEO Gopalakrishna Dwivedi is not given any posting
Amaravati: The Election Commission of India has transferred Chief Electoral Officer Gopal Krishna Dwivedi on Thursday. It appointed K. Vijayanand, IAS (1992 cadre) as the Chief Electoral Officer for the State with immediate effect.
Vijayanad, cease to hold and handover forthwith the charge of all or any charges of work under the Government of AP, which he may be holding before such assumption of office, directed Chief Secretary LV Subrahmanyam in an order.
Vijayanand, while functioning as the CEO will not hold any additional charge whatsoever under the Government of AP except that he should be designated Secretary to the Government in charge of Election Department in the State Secretariat, Subrahmanyam informed.
On the other hand, the government did not give post to Dwivedi at present. He is
likely to be offered a good position in Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy's government, sources said.
