The Election Commission of India will announce the assembly election schedule for Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Uttarakhand, Goa and Manipur on January 8 afternoon amid growing COVID-19 cases across the country, which can have a bearing on electioneering.


The poll panel has convened a press conference at 3.30 pm, officials said.

The polling in the five states is expected to be held between mid-February and early March. The announcement of the elections will kick in the model code of conduct, which bans the government from taking any decision that can influence the poll outcome.
