Names of the remaining 90 candidates will be short-listed in a day or so, Raje told a press conference in Jaipur.

The BJP central election committee in Delhi will declare all names latest by November 7 or 8, she said.

She said by and large all sitting MLAs would get tickets.

The party will give 20 per cent tickets to women and young party workers.

Asked if her own seat had been finalised, she said the CEC would take the decision. "I can contest from anywhere in my Jhalawar constituency from where I am a Lok Sabha member."
