The counting of ballots for recently concluded Lok Sabha polls and assembly polls of a few states will take place tomorrow.
For the counting, which is scheduled to start from 8 in the morning, the Election Commission has put in place an elaborate arrangement at all 4,260 counting halls in 1,080 centres across the country, which would be managed by nearly 60,000 personnel.
With a view to make instant result of the election available, the Commission has launched a special website www.eciresults.nic.in.
In the elections taken place in five phases, a little over half of the country’s 71.37 crore registered voters exercised their franchise. The election began on April 16 and ended on May 13. As many as 8,070 candidates belonging to 46 national and state parties are in the fray.
Elections are held to 543 seats of the 545-member Lok Sabha, as two members are nominated from the Anglo-Indian community. A party or a coalition needs to have at least 272 seats in the Lok Sabha to stake claim to form a government.
