Chandigarh: Bye-elections to Adampur and Ratia
(SC) Assembly constituencies in Haryana, which recently
fell vacant, will be held on November 30.

The poll schedule for these constituencies was announced
by the Election Commission today, Haryana`s Chief Electoral
Officer Sumita Misra said here.

She said that a notification to this effect would be
issued on November 5 and last date for filing of nominations
would be November 12. The nominations would be scrutinised on
November 14 and the last date of withdrawal would be Nov 16.

Counting of votes will be held on December 4.

While Adampur seat in Hisar district fell vacant as
sitting Haryana Janhit Congress MLA Kuldeep Bishnoi was
elected from Hisar Lok Sabha seat in a bye-election, Ratia
seat in Fatehabad district fell vacant after the demise of
INLD legislator Gian Chand Odh.

Misra said the Model Code of Conduct would come into force
with immediate effect in the districts in which the two
constituencies fall partly or wholly.
