COVID-19 Fallout: Election Commission Defers RS Polls Further

The Rajya Sabha polls have been deferred further by the Election Commission of India (ECI).

Originally scheduled to be held on March 26, the ECI had extended the period of completion of election through a notification issued on March 24 “in view of unforeseen public health emergency emerging from COVID-19” outbreak.

On Friday, the election commission said the polls would have to be deferred further due to the restrictions that are in place due to the coronavirus outbreak, with fresh dates to be announced later.
