CHANGE OF SCHEDULE FOR GENERAL ELECTION TO THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF MIZORAM– REGARDING.

The Election Commission of India had announced the schedule for General Election to the Legislative Assembly of Mizoram vide its press note dated 4th October, 2013 wherein the date of poll had been announced as 4th December, 2013 (Wednesday) and the date of counting had been announced as 8th December, 2013 (Sunday).

            Subsequently, representations were received by the Commission from various political parties and other organizations of the state for changing the poll and counting dates for this election. It has been brought to notice of the Commission that casting of votes on 4th December, 2013 would be inconvenient for a large segment of the people. Similarly, it has been brought to the notice of the Commission that 8th Dec, 2013 being a Sunday would be inconvenient for a segment of the people for whom Sunday has special significance.
