78.6% voter turnout in 2nd phase polls

india Updated: May 13, 2011 12:33 IST

The overall percentage of voting in both the phases of Assam assembly poll was 76.03% with the just-concluded second phase of polls recording 78.6% turnout.

With 78.6% of voters exercising franchise in the second phase of assembly polls held on Monday and 73.04% voter turnout recorded in the first phase, the overall percentage of both the phases was 76.03, state chief electoral officer Hemanta Narzary told reporters on Tuesday.

The state election commission has recommended repoll in six polling stations in the second phase where voting process had to be stopped.

Among the polling stations where repoll has been recommended are four from Rangiya assembly constituency, one each in Bhabanipur and Udalguri seats, he said.

Polling had to be stopped in the polling stations as the presiding officers could not carry out the process due to clash among rival parties and intimidation by party supporters, he said.
