Rajasthan: Results of civic bodies polls to be announced today

Jaipur: The results of the 129 civic bodies' polls, will be declared today as counting of votes has begun at 8 am.

"The counting will start at 8 AM in the 129 civic bodies which had gone to polls on August 17, witnessing 76.05 per cent turnout," Commissioner of Rajasthan State Election Commission (RSEC) Ramlubhaya said.

According to the sources, the complete results are expected to be declared between 10 am and 11 am.

Poll fortunes of 10,582 candidates who contested for 3306 councillor posts in 129 muncipal bodies would be declared, he said.

Forty-five councillors have already been declared uncontested winners after the withdrawal process early this month, the commissioner added.

The municipal results would be a political test for chief minister Vasundhara Raje, who was recently embroiled in controversies related to Lalit Modi, as well as Congress state president Sachin Pilot, who has been tasked to revive the party in Rajasthan.

A record voter turnout of 76.19% in the elections indicated that the people would be asserting their choice unambiguously. The BJP exuded confidence that it would sweep the polls, while the Congress said the results would be in its favour due to the Raje-government's "wrong doings".

The election of the chairpersons in 129 civic bodies, including Ajmer Municipal Corporation, would be held on August 21 in which all 3351 councillors (3306+45) would vote, and the election of deputy chairpersons would be held on August 22 in the same way, he said.

This would be first time when every elected councillor would have atleast passed class X and every candidate would have a toilet in his house as the state government made the same mandatory through an ordinance, he said.
