J&K: EC to discuss delimitation of constituencies with deputy commissioners today

The Election Commission of India (ECI) on Wednesday will hold virtual discussions with its representatives in Jammu and Kashmir and deputy commissioners regarding the delimitation of the 90 Assembly constituencies in the Union territory.
The development is taking place a day before 14 political leaders from Jammu and Kashmir—former chief ministers and ministers and party chiefs—will be attending the meeting on Jammu and Kashmir called by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

 The meeting is the first major political outreach by the Centre to end the political impasse in the UT after the abrogation of Article 370.
The ECI will hold discussions with the representatives of the commission and 20 deputy commissioners in two sessions.
In the first session, discussions will be attended by deputy commissioners of 10 districts and in the second session, the discussions will be held with the deputy commissioners of the remaining 10 districts.
This is the first meeting of the ECI with the deputy commissioners of Jammu and Kashmir after the delimitation commission was set up by the Centre last year.
The meeting with the deputy commissioners assumes significance as they also happen to be the district electoral officers in the UT.
