AP SEC Nimmagadda Ramesh Kumar to release Local Body Election notification
Andhra Pradesh State Election Commission is going to release the notification for local body polls today as per state High Court orders. It is known that the High Court dismissed the stay orders issued by the single judge to hold the local body polls and ordered the government and SEC to conduct the Panchayat elections in a fair and free manner in February as per schedule.
Challenging the High Court's verdict, the Andhra Pradesh government approached the Supreme Court and on Saturday the ApeX Court rejected the petition citing errors in it and asked to submit again. AP CS Adityanath Das wrote a letter to SEC requesting to postpone the elections due to Coronavirus vaccination drive.
