New Delhi: Taking into account the large number of weddings on November 23, the Election Commission has decided that the Rajasthan Assembly elections will be held on November 25 instead of November 23

“Representations have been received by the Commission from various political parties, social organisations and also issues raised in various media platforms for change of date of poll considering large scale wedding, social engagement on that day which may cause inconvenience to a large number of people, various logistics issues and may lead to reduced voter participation during the poll,” the Election Commission said in a statement.
