Nominations commence for biennial RS polls in UP for 10 seats slated on Nov 9

Lucknow, Oct 20 (UNI) Nomination process to biennial elections for 10 Rajya Sabha seats in Uttar Pradesh slated on November 9, commenced from Tuesday.

According to EC sources here, the notification of the biennial polls was issued this morning while the last date for filing of the nominations is October 27.

Scrutiny of the nominations would be done on October 28 while November 2 is the last date of withdrawals.

If required the polling would be held on November 9 and the results would be declared on the same day.

The members of the state assembly are the voters in this election.

As BJP has around 310 seats in the 403 members house, the ruling party is likely to win 8 seats of the 10 comfortably while SP with 46 seats can win and one seat can be won by a joint opposition.

There are eight vacancies in the state assembly and hence strength will decrease to 395 votes.

The winning candidate will have to get 34 votes.

SP has already announced Prof Ram Gopal Yadav as his candidate for the biennial polls but no other party including BJP has announced their candidates.

Prof Yadav will file his nomination papers tomorrow.

SP has also summoned all its MLAs in Lucknow today for giving their signature on the nomination forms of Prof Ram Gopal Yadav.

The members whose term would end on November 25, 2020, are union minister and BJP member Hardeep Singh Puri, BJP national general secretary Arun Singh, BJP's Neeraj Shekhar, SP's Ram Gopal Yadav, Ravi Prakash Verma, Dr Chandrapal Singh Yadav and Javed Ali Khan, BSP's Veer Singh and Rajaram and Congress member P L Punia.
