Tussle between poll boycotters and Government in Kashmir
9/17/2018 10:17:35 PM
Now that the Government has announced the four-phase poll schedule for the ULB elections it may be the tussle between the Kashmir centric parties, the PDP, the NC and the separatists, who have announced they would boycott the elections. It will be a tussle between those who have decided to boycott the poll and the Governor. It will be a tie between the those who have announced to boycott the polls and the fence sitters But the Government seems determined to hold the municipal elections which is to be followed by the Panchayat elections because the Governor knows that good polling percentage in the region of Jammu and Ladakh may compensate for the very poor polling in the Kashmir valley. Despite the poll boycott call, the state election commission has announced four-phase election schedule for Municipal polls in Jammu and Kashmir.
Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) Shaleen Kabra said the urban local bodies elections (UBL) would be conducted in the state from October 8. "Municipal elections shall be held in four phases -- October 8, 10, 13 and October 16. Counting shall take place on October 20. Polling hours will be from 7 am to 2pm," he said. Kabra said the state has 79 municipal bodies which include two corporations, one in Srinagar and another in Jammu. "There are 1,145 wards in these 79 bodies which have an electoral strength of 16,9,721," he said. According to the CEO, the municipal polls will be conducted in four phases from October 8.
The notification for the first phase will be issued on September 18. For the first phase, the last date for filing nominations will be September 25 while date of withdrawal of nominations will be September 28.
The date of poll for the first phase has been set for October 8 Polling for the second phase will take place on October 10.
"The notification will be issued on September 20. The last date for filing nominations will be September 27. The date of withdrawal of nominations will be October 1," CEO said. The polling for the third phase of the municipal polls will be held on October 13. "Notifications for this phase will be issued on September 22 and the last date for filing nominations for the phase will be September 29. The date of withdrawal of nominations will be October 3," he said.
"The fourth and final phase of the polls will be held on October 16. The notification will be issued on September 24 and candidates can submit their nominations till October 1. The candidature can be withdrawn by October 5," Kabra said. Thus the Government has made proper arrangement for ensuring fair and free poll. And over 15,000 security personnel will guard each and every polling booth besides police columns will be available for poll duty. Still in case the polling percentage is fair in all the regions the Government has won the battle against the poll boycotters.
