TOG News Service, New Delhi, July 13, 2017: Considering the awful climatic conditions prevailing in Arunachal Pradesh, the Election Commission (EC), in exercise of its powers under Article 324 of the Constitution of India has cancelled the bye-election to Pakke-Kessang assembly constituency on Wednesday, which was earlier scheduled to take place on July 29, 2017.

The Chief Electoral Officer, Arunachal Pradesh vide letters dated 6th and 10th July, 2017 has informed that due to heavy rainfall, landslides at many places and washing away of various formations, the road communication has been badly affected. It has also been reported that out of twenty six polling-stations in the constituency, only nine polling stations are accessible at the moment.

The Chief Secretary, Arunachal Pradesh vide letter dated July 11, 2017 has also reported that under the current difficult climatic conditions, the conduct of poll as per the schedule may not be possible as movement and retrieval of polling teams are likely to be adversely affected.

The EC has considered the above reports of the Chief Electoral Officer and the Chief Secretary, Arunachal Pradesh and also reviewed all relevant factors-prevailing weather conditions, transportation of polling parties and election material, maintenance of polling stations and participation of all stake holders in the said bye-election including political parties, aspiring candidates and electors and is convinced that under the prevailing weather conditions, it is not possible to hold the bye-election from the said assembly constituency as per the schedule fixed vide notification dated July 5, 2017.
