Uncertainty hangs over the elections to 11 seats of Maharashtra Legislative Council which would fall vacant on December 5 as sitting members' term would end.
Elections to Aurangabad Teachers constituency, Nagpur Teachers constituency, Konkan Teachers constituency, Nashik Graduates constituency and Amravati Graduates constituency would certainly be delayed due to the Supreme Court order of January 12 seeking fresh registration of voters.
Election Commission of India (ECI) has fixed December 31 as the date for publication of the new voters list.
But this has put a question mark on elections to six 'local authority' constituencies: Sangli-Satara, Bhandara-Gondia, Yavatmal, Pune, Nanded and Jalgaon.
The SC order pertains to only the Graduates and Teachers constituencies in Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Telangana, Bihar and Karnataka.
ECI sources said the elections to the five Graduates and Teachers constituencies would be held in all probability next year, but they pleaded ignorance about the fate of the elections to other six seats.
An ECI source said there was a school of thought that civic corporators who have barely three months of tenure left should not be voting in coming MLC elections.
