Elections to the Odisha Assembly will be held in 4 phases.

- 2nd phase on 18th April.

Addressing a press briefing at Vigyan Bhavan in New Delhi, CEC Arora said: "The Model Code of Conduct (MCC) comes into effect from today itself in the entire country". Counting will be held on May 23. Decision on forging alliances, with several state units up in arms against them, will be finalised.

Elections to 175 assembly seats and 25 Lok Sabha seats in Andhra Pradesh will be held on April 11.

Election Commission of India had announced the Schedule for the General Elections and the Assembly Elections of Five States a little while ago.

National Conference leader Omar Abdullah on Sunday criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government and accused him of "surrendering" to Pakistan and militants to prevent the announcement of dates of Assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir. Under the poll code, the party in power, whether at the Centre or in the States, have to ensure that no cause is given for any complaint that it has used its official position for the purposes of its election campaign.

While the first phase will be held on April 11, the subsequent phases will be held on April 18, April 23, April 29, May 6, May 12 and May 19.

The Jammu and Kashmir assembly was dissolved in November previous year, months after the Mehbooba Mufti-headed government in the state fell following the BJP withdrawing support to it in June.

Arora said Sunday that 91 constituencies would go to the polls in the first phase, 97 in the second, 115 in the third, 71 in the fourth, 51 in the fifth, 59 in the sixth, and 59 in the seventh and last phase. I hope this election witnesses a historic turnout. However, there is no clarity yet on whether elections in Jammu and Kashmir will be held along with the General election. The last date of nomination of phase 1 is March 25.

The Election Commission has appointed three Poll Observers including Noor Mohammad, A S Gill and Vinod Zutshi.
