Lok Sabha Election 2019 Date in Assam: The Election Commission has announced the schedule of Lok Sabha elections in Assam and the rest of the country today. The high-voltage Lok Sabha elections will be spread over seven phases in April-May. The poll panel held a press conference at 5 pm at Vigyan Bhavan here. The term of the present Lok Sabha ends on June 3. As soon as the elections, in which Prime Minister Narendra Modi will make his bid to return to power amid hectic parleys by several political parties to put a united fight against the ruling BJP, are announced, the model code of conduct will come into force.
Amongst other things, the code bars the government from announcing policy decisions.
In Assam, elections will be held in three phases on April 11th, 18th and 23rd respectively.
Notification for the first phase could be issued by the end of March for voting some time in early April, sources suggested. There is a strong possibility that the EC may go by the precedent and hold assembly elections in Andhra Pradesh, Odisha, Sikkim and Arunachal Pradesh along with the Lok Sabha polls.
Elections will start from April 11 and counting on 23rd May. Elections will be held in seven phases.
