The Election Commission (EC) replaced its general observer for one of Rajasthan's Assembly seats Tuesday as it found his presentation on poll preparedness "unsatisfactory", a senior functionary of the poll panel said.

The commission replaced Kanwaljeet Singh Cheema with P N Sridhar as the general observer for the Kishangarh Assembly seat in Ajmer, the functionary said.

He said Cheema's presentation on poll preparedness at a review meeting held by the EC via video-conferencing Monday was found to be "unsatisfactory".

Rajasthan goes to polls on December 7.
