Election Commission to Announce Lok Sabha Election Schedule Tomorrow

The Election Commission of India has announced that it will reveal the schedule for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections and some state assemblies tomorrow. The eagerly anticipated announcement will take place during a press conference at 3 pm in New Delhi’s Vigyan Bhawan.

In a statement released today, the Election Commission stated, “Press Conference by Election Commission to announce schedule for general elections 2024 & some state assemblies will be held at 3 pm tomorrow ie Saturday, 16th March. It will be livestreamed on social media platforms of the ECI.”

The Model Code of Conduct, a set of guidelines governing the conduct of political parties, candidates, and the government during elections, will come into effect immediately following the announcement. This ensures fairness and transparency in the electoral process.

The current term of the Lok Sabha is set to expire on June 16, necessitating the formation of a new House before that date. In the previous Lok Sabha elections, announced on March 10, the voting took place in seven phases starting from April 11, with the results declared on May 23.

Today’s announcement coincides with the induction of two newly-appointed election commissioners, Gyanesh Kumar and Sukhbir Singh Sandhu, who joined the poll panel. Their appointment fills the vacancies left by the resignation of Arun Goel and the retirement of Anup Chandra Pandey.

The forthcoming announcement sets the stage for a heated political battle between the Narendra Modi-led NDA government and the Congress-led INDIA bloc.

With nearly 97 crore people registered to vote in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, it marks the largest electorate in history. Notably, two crore youth electors in the age group of 18 to 29 years have been added to the voters’ list, reflecting a surge in youth participation in the democratic process.

The Election Commission’s meticulous planning and coordination, including the revision of electoral rolls in Jammu and Kashmir and Assam following constituency delimitation, have ensured inclusivity, integrity, and accuracy in the electoral rolls. This underscores the Commission’s commitment to upholding the principles of democracy and facilitating free and fair elections.
