The Election Commission has decided to postpone elections to three assembly constituencies in Himachal Pradesh -- Kinnaur, Bharmour and the Lahaul and Spiti seat -- to June eight in view of inclement weather conditions in these areas.
According to the poll scheduled earlier announced by the EC, assembly polls in Himachal Pradesh, Meghayala, Nagaland and Tripura are to be held on February 26.
The decision to defer the poll for these three constituencies was taken after taking all material circumstances into account, including the representations received from various political parties and individuals and also the report of the chief electoral officer of the state, the EC said in a press release in Delhi.
