Odisha Lok Sabha Result To Be Declared Late Due To Assembly Vote Counting

The declaration of election results of Lok Sabha in Odisha is likely to be delayed compared to other states since votes for assembly polls will also have to be counted, a senior election official said Monday.
Besides, voter verifiable paper audit trail (VVPATs) will also have to be counted and that will also take some time, state Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) Surendra Kumar said.
The votes will be counted across the country on May 23.
"The vote counting in Odisha will require more time as the state is conducting simultaneous polls for both the Lok Sabha and the assembly," Mr Kumar said while addressing a training programme of Returning Officers.
While the counting of Lok Sabha votes will be held in 14 tables across the country, in Odisha it will be 7 tables each for the Lok Sabha and the state Assembly, the CEO said adding that declaration of results will take time in Odisha for this reason.
Mr Kumar said for the first time, the VVPATs are to be counted along with the votes in the EVMs.
