August 28 2011

The Election Commission is ecstatic about the successful election model in Bihar and West Bengal and wants to try the same formula in Uttar Pradesh. The Election Commission wants to hold the elections in the state in seven phases and the entire exercise may take upto one-and-a-half to two months. Elections are also due to be help in Uttarakhand and Punjab and it is hoped that they will take place in both states by mid-January. Elections will be held in Goa and Manipur by the second week of April. That’s because next year is when the President and the vice-president will also be elected. The President will be elected in mid-June 2012 and the Election Commission wants that the new Assembly should be formed in the five states before the President elections so that it is easier to make the electoral rolls.
