Schedule of Assam Elections

Assam Assembly elections will be held on Monday for 65 seats and here is the schedule of elections released by the Election Commission. In all, a total number of 19,984,486 voters are eligible to vote though the expected percentage of voting is around 65% this year.

The major problem for the ruling Congress is anti-incumbency factor as it recieved flak on not making an impact on the state’s development while BJP has emerged a strong contender and 1,064 candidates are in the frey for the phase 1 voting.

The opinion polls are indicating a hung assembly with BJP not gaining an absolute majority thus pushed to rope in other minor party MLAs, while the left may lean towards Congress in formation of the government.
