While the state government had requested the Election Commission to hold polls in multiple phases, officials have decided on the contrary. Sources say that there would be further consultations on this subject with all political parties before a final call on the matter is taken.

The EC wanted to announce the calendar of events by February 25. However, this has been postponed according to sources. The EC has however decided to use VVPATs during the elections this year.
