5 states set to go to polls in 2017

2017 will set the tone for setting up of new government in 5 states of the country. These states are Goa, Manipur, Punjab, Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh.

As per the press note issued by Election Commission of India on 8th December 2017 the general elections for the State Legislative Assembly for Goa, Manipur, Punjab, Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh will be held in 2017 as their term are due to expire on 18th March 2017, 18th March 2017, 18th March 2017, 26th March 2017 & 27th May 2017 respectively under the provisions of article 172(1) of the Constitution of India.

Therefore the general elections to constitute the new legislative assemblies of the above states to replace the outgoing state legislative assemblies are required under the constitution to be held before the expiry of the term of the existing state legislative assemblies.

Section 15 of the Representation of the people Act, 1951 provides that a general election to constitute the new State Legislative Assembly many be conducted by the Election Commission at any time within a period of six months before the schedule expiration of the term of the State Legislative Assembly.

February 1, 2017 is the date of Union budget along with the Railway Budgets which can see many people centric sops. The notification of elections can be made on this day evening itself as no sops can be announced one the elections are announced and the model code of conduct comes into force.

The Xth and XIIth exams will be probably be held from 1st March 2017.With all these options before hand the last fortnight of February 2017 seems to be the right option for conduct of elections in 4 states of Goa, Manipur, Punjab and Uttarakhand as their term expires in March 2017 and the counting can take place in first week of March 2017.

The election of Uttar Pradesh which will be most crucial of the 2017 elections can be scheduled for April 2017 after the exams are over because the month of Ramadan will start probably from 20th May 2017 and the EC may like to finish the process before it.

So get set go for the coming election months of 2017 as the Election Commission gets ready to announce the elections for 5 states which will have new State Assembly in 2017.
