yes, i am talking about lie detection test. any one who is running in election, be it a MLA or MP or local Representative, they all should pass polygraph test in order to qualify for election. Polygraph test is also known as "lie detection test". A polygraph (popularly referred to as a lie detector) measures and records several physiological indices such as blood pressure, pulse, respiration, and skin conductivity while the subject is asked and answers a series of questions. The belief is that deceptive answers will produce physiological responses that can be differentiated from those associated with non-deceptive answers. The polygraph was invented in 1921 by John Augustus Larson, a medical student at the University of California at Berkeley and a police officer of the Berkeley Police Department in Berkeley, California. According to EncyclopÃ¦dia Britannica, the polygraph was on its 2003 list of greatest inventions, described by the company as inventions that "have had profound effects on human life for better or worse." Many members of the scientific community consider polygraphy to be pseudoscience. Nonetheless, in some countries polygraphs are used as an interrogation tool with criminal suspects or candidates for sensitive public or private sector employment. US federal government agencies such as the FBI and the CIA and many police departments such as the LAPD use polygraph examinations to interrogate suspects and screen new employees. Within the US federal government, a polygraph examination is also referred to as a psychophysiological detection of deception (PDD) examination. my point here is all politician should be fired a salvo of questions during test related to corruption, personal properties, family business, criminal and illegible activities etc. if the politician is lying then it will be caught in Polygraph machine because of responses produced by his body. so if a politician fails on repeated polygraph test then he should be kicked from the election. how polygraph test work. lie detector - a science How does a lie detector (polygraph) work?
