The stirring of Gujarat Assembly Election 2022 is intensifying.

The stirring of Gujarat Assembly Election 2022 is intensifying. All the parties including BJP, and Congress are putting their full strength to woo the voter. Meanwhile, a big update has come about the election. There is news that the Election Commission can announce the election dates next week.

Gujarat election dates were not announced with Himachal

Citing a convention adopted in 2017, the Election Commission had earlier this month not announced Gujarat's election schedule along with the dates for the upcoming Himachal Pradesh assembly elections. Himachal will go to polls in one phase on November 12, while the counting of votes will be done on December 8.

Election Commission gave indications, counting of votes for Gujarat elections will be held on December 8

The Election Commission, while keeping the date of counting of votes for Himachal Pradesh, almost a month after the polling, had clearly indicated that the counting of votes for the Gujarat elections would also take place on December 8. Elections were announced on different dates in both the states in 2017, but the counting of votes took place simultaneously on 18 December. In fact, due to the floods in Gujarat, the Election Commission had to conduct elections after the announcement of the Himachal election schedule in the state. According to the website of the Election Commission, elections were held simultaneously in the years 1998, 2007 and 2012 in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh. The term of the 182-member Gujarat Assembly ends on February 18, 2023.
