EC to announce dates for Gujarat, Himachal Pradesh assembly elections today

The election commission is set to announce the dates for assembly polls in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh on Thursday, officials said.

The announcement is likely to be announced by Chief Election Commissioner A.K. Jyoti at the press conference that has been convened poll watchdog at 4 PM today.

On the other hand Gujarat polls will be very important for Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) because after the grand victory in 2017 assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh the stakes are very high and 2019 Lok Sabha elctions will depend a lot on 2017 Gujarat assembly polls. Congress has already announced Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh as the party's chief ministerial candidate last week.

Gujarat is also scheduled to go to polls later this year. It was long back announced that the elections might be held in Dec, but the specific dates were yet to be decided. Jyoti had said that to tally the number of slips with the votes cast, the paper slips would be counted at a single booth in each of the 182 constituencies. The Congress won 36 of the 68 seats while the BJP won 26 of the 68 seats. If we talk about the Gujarat elections, then there are around 182 seats in the house which presently comprised of 118 BJP MLA's, 42 Congress, 2 from NCP and one from JD (U). The EC sources said the Himachal elections may be held early since the state will be in the grip of extremely cold wave and heavy snowfall by November end and the Lahaul-Spiti district may even become inaccessible by early December.

Both Congress and BJP have been holding heated campaigns in Gujarat.

The Election Campaign is likely to announce the dates for the assembly elections in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh by 4 pm today.
