Election for three municipal corporations in the National Capital Territory has been postponed by a day to 23rd April keeping in view the CBSE board examination.
The date for counting of votes has also been extended to April 26.
“We tried to hold the elections on April 22 only but it would have been difficult to manage it due to Class XII CBSE examination on the polling day. In view of this, now the MCD polls will be held on April 23. As a result, we have also postponed the date for counting by a day to April 26,” State Election Commissioner S K Srivastava told PTI.
MCD polls were earlier scheduled to be held on April 22 and the counting was to take place on April 25. “However, dates for all other poll processes, including for nominations, would remain unchanged,” he said.
The total number of electorate for the civic polls stands at 1,32,10,206, which include 73,15,915 men, 58,93,418 women and 793 voters in the other category, the state election commission said.
