MCD elections: Delhi polls date shifted by a day to April 23 due to board exam

According To India Vote Kar
The municipal elections in the Capital will be held on April 23 instead of April 22 as decided earlier, the Delhi state election commission said on Wednesday.

State Election Commissioner SK Srivastava said the decision was taken in view of the scheduled class XII exam, which are scheduled on the same date. The votes will be counted on April 26, three days after the polls.

“Polling has been deferred by a day because of the CBSE’s class XII Hindi exam. The voting will be held on April 23. Similarly, the counting of votes has also been postponed for a day to April 26,” he said.

Because of the scheduled exam on April 22, we were finding it difficult to manage staff required for elections. A sizeable number of teachers and police personnel are engaged for smooth polling. Keeping all factors in mind, the decision was taken to change the dates. We can’t postpone the elections for long, hence it is being deferred by a day, he added.
