Himachal Pradesh Election Dates To Be Announced At 4 PM

The schedule has been, however, kept under wraps until the Election Commission announces the dates of the Himachal Pradesh and Gujarat Assembly elections.

Achal Kumar Jyoti, on Tuesday during a press conference had said that the polls in both the states will be held in Dec, however, he did not disclose the dates, nor did he say anything if Gujarat will hold a one or two-phase elections. A few members of EC had indicated recently that Gujarat will go for polls in December 2017 as the current term of the term of the 182-member assembly ends in January, 2018. The tenure of the Himachal Pradesh government ends in November this year.

While the Congress has not named any leader as its chief ministerial candidate for Gujarat polls, it has announced incumbent Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh as the candidate for Himachal Pradesh. The dates for the election are likely to be announced at 4PM today.

The poll panel, for the first time, will also introduce all-women polling stations in Gujarat in all assembly segments.

The 2012 Gujarat legislative assembly elections were held in December 2012 for all 182 members of the state legislative assembly. The strength in the 182-member Gujarat House now comprises 118 BJP MLAs, 42 from the Congress, two from the NCP, and one from JD (U).

The Congress has 36 seats in the 68-member Himachal Pradesh Assembly, while BJP has 26.

Meanwhile, eyeing the assembly polls, the Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) and Congress have begun rigorous election campaign in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh.

In particular, the contest in Gujarat, Modi's home state where the BJP has been in power for 22 years, will be keenly watched for signs of voter reaction to some of his radical economic policies that made doing business far more complicated, especially for small and medium companies.
