Monday January 12, 2015 5:01 PM, Agencies

Delhi will go to the polls February 7 and the vote count will take place February 10, the Election Commission announced Monday.

Election Commissioner V.S. Sampath said the last date for nomination of candidates will be Jan 21 and they could withdraw from the contest by Jan 24.

The announcement was made after a full-fledged meeting of the Election Commission to take stock of the preparations related to the Delhi Assembly election and issues related to electoral rolls.

Major political parties in Delhi have already started preparing for the assembly polls.

Since Delhi is the only state going to polls now, the availability of central paramilitary forces will not be a problem, the sources said, adding that about 100 CRPF companies may be enough for free and fair conduct of election.

Delhi also does not have history of violence or booth capturing that have been witnessed in the states in the past.

Delhi elected a hung assembly in December 2013 after which the Aam Aadmi Party formed a minority government headed by Arvind Kejriwal with Congress backing. Kejriwal resigned Feb 14, 2014.
