UP elections Phase 1 to see 867 contestants fighting for 55 constituencies

Phase 1 of Uttar Pradesh polls are scheduled on February 8th 2012 and 867 candidates will fight for 55 Assembly constituencies.

Monday was the last day to withdraw the candidature from Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections. Out of 994 nominations filed for the phase 1, 66 candidates decided to pull their names out of the fray. Election Commission themselves rejected the candidature of 61 candidates because of incorrect forms or other reasons.

The first phase will see the districts and areas of Sitapur, Barabanki, Faizabad, Kanpur Dehat, Bahraich, Shrawasti, Balrampur, Gonda, Siddharthnagar and Basti go to polls. In the 2009 General elections, Congress was favoured mostly and they got the most seats here. So, 2012 polls in these areas are expected to be a close race between Congress and BSP.
