Exit polls can be telecast after 5.30 pm on Thursday: EC

The Election Commission (EC) has said that the exit polls can be telecast after 5:30 pm on Thursday.

The decision to postpone the exit poll has been taken in view of the election to be held on Thursday in the Alapur Assembly constituency in Uttar Pradesh and Karnaprayag in Uttarakhand following the demise of candidates of recogniged parties.

The period of prohibition for exit polls as per the earlier notification of the EC in the state was to end on Wednesday. EC said, the exit polls will be telecast after polling ends in these two constituencies.

The last phase of polling in Uttar Pradesh and Manipur is on Wednesday. But following the demise of two candidates in UP and Uttarakhand, the commission had postponed elections there and fixed Thursday as the new date.

According to election laws, exit polls can be telecast half-an-hour after the end of polling in all the phases and states.
