Addressing the media in the national capital, the Election Commission of India said that the counting of the votes in Bihar is underway. Deputy Election Commissioner Chandra Bhushan said the poll panel has not noticed any glitch so far during the vote counting. Chandra Bhushan has also said that the Bihar election result is expected to be out only by late-night. “Earlier, the counting of the votes used to take place in 38 locations. Now, due to the coronavirus pandemic guidelines, it is taking place at 55 locations. This time, it will take 35 rounds per assembly constituency to get the Bihar election results,” he added. As per officials, trends and declaration of results might take a bit longer in comparison to last assembly elections as polling stations have gone up by 45%, from 72,723 earlier to 1,06,515 in order to ensure adherence to social distancing norms in view of the novel coronavirus pandemic.
