The Election Commission of India has announced the dates for the Lok Sabha polls and the polling will begin from 11 April, to be held in 7 phases. Almost 90 crore voters would be eligible to vote for 543 Lok Sabha constituencies across the country.

The counting of votes for all the Lok Sabha and Assembly constituencies will be done on May 23.

The dates are April 11, April 18, April 23, April 29, May 6, May 12 and May 19. Consequent on the announcement of the schedule for the General Election, the Model Code of Conduct (MCC) for the Guidance of Political Parties and Candidates comes into operation with immediate effect from today itself in the entire country.

I hope this election witnesses a historic turnout. While the first date of polling was April 20 and the last date was May 10.

Mir said it was the golden chance for the Centre to hold assembly election in order to give an elected government to the people as all the political parties were of the opinion that simultaneously elections should be held in the state. It is generally believed that the Election will be held during the months of April and May.

On April 18, polling will be held in Dakshina Kannada and Udupi-Chikkamagaluru along with Hassan, Chitradurga, Tumakuru, Mandya, Mysuru, Chamarajanagar, Bengaluru rural, Bengaluru north, Bengaluru central, Bengaluru south, Chikkaballapur and Kolar.
