Bringing down the curtains to the long-awaited by-election in residuary Andhra Pradesh, Election Commission of India has finally announced schedule for Allagadda constituency’s by-election. EC is going to release the official notification on October 14 where there will be one-week time for filing the nominations and withdrawing them. By-election will be held on November 8 and the votes will be counted on November 12. The result will be declared on the same day.
It may be recalled that YSR Congress party candidate Shobha Nagireddy, who was fielded from the constituency for 2014 Assembly elections, died in a tragic road accident ahead of general election. Commission went ahead for the election and deceased candidate Shobha won the election with good margin. Since then EC has been dragging its feet on conducting by-election. Finally, it’s been announced now. It’s TDP vs YSRCP battle in the constituency.
