Only Lok Sabha polls in Jammu and Kashmir

Only Lok Sabha polls in Jammu and Kashmir

- 2nd phase on 18th April.

"But EC will strictly enforce its instructions restraining parties and candidates from using photos of chiefs of armed forces or defence personnel in their poll campaign material, alongside photos of political leaders, for soliciting votes", said a senior election commission official. However, there is no clarity yet on whether elections in Jammu and Kashmir will be held along with the General election.

There is a strong possibility that the EC may go by the precedent and hold assembly elections in Andhra Pradesh, Odisha, Sikkim and Arunachal Pradesh along with the Lok Sabha polls.

Lok Sabha polls in Assam will be held in 3 Phases.

He said model code of conduct for polls has come into immediate effect from March 10 and all political advertisements on social media will need pre-certification.

The meeting has been scheduled for 12 PM today, and would be chaired by chief election commissioner Sunil Arora, News18 reported. This is in tune with the wishes of the YCP leaders for conducting the elections to twin Telugu states in a single phase.

The JK political parties had pitched state and Lok Sabha polls be held simeltaneously before a panel of commission, which visited the state last week.

The other state assemblies and Lok Sabha have five-year terms.

However, elections for the Jammu and Kashmir Assembly, which was dissolved after the ruling coalition between the BJP and the PDP fell apart, will not be held along with the Lok Sabha polls, with the EC reportedly citing security reasons for the decision.

Voting for the Lok Sabha election will be held at almost 10 lakh polling stations across 543 constituencies.

In 2014 Lok Sabha polls, the BJP had won a landslide majority to form its government at the Centre after a gap of 10 years.

There is a high probability of the elections being spread across seven to eight phases this time. The last date of nomination of phase 1 is March 25.
