The repoll in 34 polling stations in three districts in Manipur, where election was held in the first phase on March 4, today recorded an 89% voting.

Manipur Chief Electoral Officer Vivek Kumar Dewangan said, “89 per cent polling was recorded at the end of the repoll in 34 polling stations.”

Dewangan said that a repoll would be held in a single booth tomorrow in view of reports of malpractices there.

The Election Commission has also ordered a repoll tomorrow in 27 polling stations spread across 22 Assembly constituencies where election was held in the second phase on March 8 following complaints of electoral malpractices.
