Sources also stated that the first list of candidates for Delhi elections is expected to be released soon.

The next meeting of CEC is scheduled for 14th January.

The Congress Central Election Committee meeting for the Delhi assembly elections was held on Saturday.

Assembly polls will be held in Delhi on February 8 while counting of votes will take place on February 11.

Model Code of Conduct has come into force in Delhi with the announcement of the poll schedule.

The Election Commission stated that election notification will be issued on January 14, the last date of nomination of candidates is January 21, scrutiny of nominations will take place on January 22 and the last date of withdrawal of candidature is January 24.
