The Bihar assembly election dates will be announced on Friday by the Election Commission. It will be the first state election to be held in the middle of a worldwide COVID-19 crisis.

Bihar Assembly has to elect a new 243-member assembly by November 29. The polls are likely to be held in mid-October, in more than one phase because of Covid precautions.

The Commission is also likely to announce the schedule for the by-election to one Lok Sabha and 64 assembly seats spread across 15 states.

The bypoll to the Valmiki Nagar Lok Sabha seat in Bihar has been pending.

Among the 64 vacant assembly seats, 27 are in Madhya Pradesh. Most of these 27 seats fell vacant when rebel Congress members resigned from the party and the assembly to join the BJP.
