Election Commission shocks AP with their Polls schedule!
Sunday, EC has announced the schedule for the Lok Sabha elections along with the assembly elections which will be held simultaneously in some states. All the political parties in AP were surprised with the polling date given by Election schedule.
As per the first impressions of the parties the elections would be held in the last week of April. Now, its time for a change of strategies with this announcement. As the polling is going to be held n April 11th, there is very less time for the political parties in Andhra Pradesh to finalise the list of candidates to contest in both Assembly and Parliamentary segments.
The schedule is too tight for Andhra Pradesh as the nomination process begins on March 18 and closes by March 25. Including this nomination period, there are only 31 days left for polling. Let alone the time for campaigning as the parties will only have 15 days for that.
