Lok sabha election 2024:

New Delhi: The 2024 general elections for 543 Lok Sabha seats will be held in seven phases, starting from April 19 and continuing until June 1, announced Chief Election Commissioner Rajeev Kumar today, marking the commencement of the world’s largest democratic process. The BJP will try to come to power for the third consecutive time. The election results will be announced on June 4.

Four states—Sikkim, Odisha, Arunachal Pradesh, and Andhra Pradesh—will hold simultaneous elections for the State Assemblies and the Lok Sabha. The region of Jammu and Kashmir, which has been governed by the president since 2018, was left off the list.

The elections for Jammu and Kashmir’s legislative assembly will take place right after the Lok Sabha polls, Mr. Kumar remarked. He clarified that there is not enough security staff to hold both elections at the same time. “Every candidate running in the Jammu and Kashmir legislative assembly elections needs to be given security,” he continued.

There will be 26 assembly seats up for grabs in by-elections in a number of
states, including Tamil Nadu, Gujarat, Haryana, Jharkhand, Maharashtra, and
Rajasthan.

In addition to announcing the dates, Mr. Kumar sent out a strong social media warning on the proliferation of false information, advising political parties to practise responsible social media behaviour by “verifying before amplifying.”

They declared, “In compliance with current laws, there will be severe measures taken against fake news.” Nodal officers in each state have the authority to remove illegal content under Section 79(3)(b) of the IT Act.

The second, more severe message dealt with the transgression of the ideal code of conduct when speeches propagate hatred. They stated, “The campaign should be based on issues, there should be no hate speeches, no speeches based on caste or religion, and there should not be any criticism of someone’s personal life.”

The media, they added, had to make it clear that political commercials are
not to be treated as news. Regarding this, they said that individualised notes
would be conveyed to the contestants.
