Vice presidential election Aug 7, says poll panel

Tuesday July 03, 2012 08:34:45 PM, IANS

New Delhi: The election for India's next vice president will be held Aug 7, if required, the Election Commission announced Tuesday.

"VP election schedule has been announced. Poll, if required, will be on Aug 7. The counting, if required, will be on the same day," an election commission official said.

While the notification will be issued July 6, the last date of filing nominations is July 20, the poll panel said in a statement.

The date for the scrutiny of nomination is July 21, while the last date for the withdrawals is July 23.

Vice President Hamid Ansari is set to complete his tenure on Aug 10. Speculation was rife that he would be named for the post of president after Pratibha Patil completes her tenure in July. But the UPA named former finance minister Pranab Mukherjee as its nominee.
