New Delhi: The Election Commission on Monday, announced the schedule for by-elections to be held on seven assembly seats across six states. According to the schedule, by-elections will be held on November 3, 2022.

Two vacant seats in Bihar and one each in Maharashtra, Odisha, Telangana, Haryana, and Uttar Pradesh will go to by-elections.

The elections were necessitated due to vacancies in each seat. Rashtriya Janata Dal’s Anant Kumar Singh, the then MLA from Mokama, was disqualified in July after he was convicted in a case. Bharatiya Janata Party’s Subhash Singh, who held the Gopalganj seat, died in August this year.

The Andheri East, Gola Gokrannath, and Dhamnagar constituencies, too, fell vacant due to the demise of their respective MLAs: Ramesh Latke of Shiv Sena passed away in May, and BJP’s Arvind Giri and Bishnu Sethi passed away in September. Kuldeep Bishnoi and K Rajagopal Reddy tendered resignation In Haryana and Telangana respectively which led to vacancies in the Adampur and Munugode segments respectively.

Bharatiya Janata Party retained power for the second term in Uttar Pradesh and Yogi Aditynath took charge as the Chief Minister of the state for the second straight term. He became the first BJP CM to do so.

BJP secured 255 seats in the Assembly elections held earlier this year, followed by Samajwadi Party led by Akhilesh Yadav which managed to win 111 seats. National Democratic Alliance won 273 seats in total.
