Local body polls: AP SEC to meet political parties on Oct 28
The State Election Commission (SEC) will be meeting representatives of recognised political parties on October 28 to seek their opinion for continuing the election process to local bodies as the Central government had announced Unlock guidelines. In the past, the SEC had postponed the elections in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. However, the AP government has expressed its inability to conduct the elections to local bodies as the state is still registering coronavirus cases. The nomination process for ZPTCs, MPTCs, and urban local bodies had already been completed. The opposition is demanding the SEC to issue a fresh notification for local body elections.
