Assembly by-polls on May 14

J. Venkatesan

NEW DELHI: By-elections to the Kancheepuram and Gummidipoondi Assembly constituencies in Tamil Nadu will be held on May 14, the Election Commission (EC) announced on Friday. Commission sources said counting would take place on May 16.

The seats fell vacant following the death of the ruling All-India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam MLAs, S.S. Thirunavukkarasu (Kancheepuram) and K. Sudarsanam (Gummidipoondi).

The Commission's decision puts an end to speculation that Chief Minister Jayalalithaa might go in for early Assembly elections, due in May next.

The sources said the decision to hold the elections was a sequel to a report submitted by an EC team after ascertaining the views of political parties.

The EC was of the view that the by-elections would not hamper tsunami relief works.

Nominations would begin on April 18 with the issue of a formal notification that day. The last date for filing papers is April 25 and scrutiny will be done the next day. The last date for withdrawals is April 28.The EC undertook a revision of rolls for both the constituencies and the final list was published on April 7. Identification of voters would be compulsory. Those without voter ID cards would be allowed to vote after they showed other documents specified for identification.
