In a statement issued in New Delhi today, the Commission said its three members are not expected to be template or clones of each other. It also recalled that there have been so many times in the past when there has been a vast diversion of views as it can and should be. 

The Chief Election Commissioner said that he has never shied away from a public debate whenever required but there is a time for everything. 

In its meeting recently, it was unanimously decided that some groups shall be formed to deliberate the issues which arose in the course of the conduct of Lok Sabha Elections this time and the Model Code of Conduct is one of them.
