LG elections postponed

The Court of Appeal issued a stay order today (22) preventing the implementation of the Gazette notification on the delimitation of Local Government councils.

This decision was issued when the petition submitted by six voters was taken up before a three member judge bench.

Accordingly this stay order will be effective until December 4.

Therefore, the Local Government Elections which were scheduled to be held on January 27, will delay further, it is reported.
