When is the next election? | Appareil poll results

NEW DELHI: India’s election commission on Friday said that it was expecting to hold a new general election within a year, even though the Centre has already declared the current one as the final one.

The commission, which had issued a fresh election notification in May, said it was expected to release the results in the coming weeks.

“We are expecting that the current election will be held within one year,” said a commission spokesperson.

“The election commission has announced that the next general election will take place in 2019, which is within a month.

In a bid to make it easier for voters to participate, the commission is introducing a new online registration process, which will be rolled out nationwide.”

The notification was issued on the day that the election commission announced the new deadline for voting on December 20, 2019.
