Panaji: The dates for the assembly elections in Goa, Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Manipur would be decided within the "next few days", Chief Election Commissioner S.Y. Quraishi said Friday.

Quraishi, along with the two other election commissioners V.S. Sampath and H.S. Brahma, was in Goa to review poll preparedness for the forthcoming state assembly polls.

"We have completed our tours and we have taken suggestions on holding of the polls. Next few days we will sit together, negotiate, discuss on various points," he said, adding that school examinations, farming schedules, availability of armed forces were factors which would be considered before announcing the poll dates.

The poll panel chief refused to disclose whether the elections in the five states would be held together or in a staggered manner.
